Mode Choice

17
Example 1 Calculate the mode shares for auto and light rail transit (LRT) using the utility function given. u k = a k – T a – 0.03 T w – 0.01 T r – C where: T a - access time, T w - waiting time, T r - riding time, C - out of pocket cost

22
Policy Analysis Which policy may promote transit? 1-Applying congestion pricing for Auto mode ( Increase the cost of auto to 120) 2- Improving transit by decreasing waiting time to 5 minute
