Modeling Attraction-end Choice for Urban Recreational Trips: Implications for Transportation, Air Quality and Land-use Planning
Southwest Region University Transportation Center, Center for Transportation Research, University of Texas, 2001 - Trip generation - 47 pages
Attraction-end choice studies have primarily focused on non-urban recreational trips or non-recreational urban trips. Relatively little attention has been focused in the literature on urban recreational trips. In contrast, urban recreational trips are contributing increasingly to overall urban travel. In this paper, the authors examine attraction-end choice models for home-based urban recreational trips. A non-linear-in-parameters multinomial logit model is estimated using the 1996 Dallas-Fort Worth household activity survey. The effects of level-of-service, zonal attributes, trip attributes, and socio-demographic variables on recreational attraction-end choice are examined, and the implications of the results for land-use, transportation planning, and air quality analysis are discussed.
