Incompatibilities between urban transport and land use are rapidly growing in developing countries. Due to this mismatch, vehicle ownership is increasing dreadfully causing urban areas for various problems including congestion and air pollution. This study attempts to investigate the household travel behaviour on vehicle ownership, mode choice and trip sharing aspects by developing a nested logit (NL) model as a basic step of the analysis. Then, the estimated NL model is used for integrated policy assessments based on relocation of residences, road pricing, and reduction of transit fares. The policy impacts are presented as the reductions of vehicle kilometres of travel and air pollution considering Bangkok Metropolitan Region as a case study.
