Feeder mode choice to public transport

What is it about?

Home-end and activity-end preferences for access to and egress from train stations are seldom modelled explicitly in mode choice models. However, last-mile transport is a major hindrance for higher mode shares in public transport. The paper shows a number of factors that passengers consider important. This is estimated based upon a large-scale revealed preference data-set for the Copenhagen Region

Why is it important?

Understanding access and egress mode choice and passengers preferences (and dis-preferences) are important in order to increase ridership in public transport

I hope this paper make transport modellers aware of the importance of a detailed and accurate modelling of access and egress mode choice to passeneger railway systems
