Mode-Switching Behavior under Real-Time Multimodal Traveler Information

What is it about?

Travelers'en-trip response to Smartphone multimodal dynamic traveler information was addressed.

Why is it important?

En-trip mode switch behavior with the provision of detailed and high-quality multimodal dynamic traveler information including Auto Drive and Rail-transit Park-and-Ride options was modeled by an econometric model. Heterogeneity in preferences for travel time savings and correlations among repeated observations of a same respondent were addressed.
