Increasing vehicle ownership and usage is becoming a great threat to the urban environment in Asian cities. Economic growth and its related effects such as changing status of income and mobility make the travelers to own private vehicles. Also, insufficient supply and inferior quality of public transportation may encourage travelers to own and use private vehicles. Therefore, investigation of travel demand is found as an urgent issue in Asian countries. This study attempts to develop travel demand models using discrete choice modeling techniques and to analyze data from three Asian cities of Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Nagoya. The outcome of the developed models is expected to use for investigating vehicle ownership in the cities concerned and a framework is proposed for future prospects of this study.
