Commuter bicyclist route choice : Analysis using a stated preference survey Stinson, Monique A ; Bhat, Chandra R

By: Contributor(s): Publication details: Transportation Research Record, 2003Description: nr 1828, s. 107-15Subject(s): Bibl.nr: VTI P8167:1828Location: Abstract: The importance of factors affecting commuter bicyclists' route choices was evaluated. Both route-level (e.g., travel time) and link-level (e.g., pavement quality) factors are examined. Empirical models are estimated using data from a stated preference survey conducted via the Internet. The models indicate that, for commuter bicyclists, travel time is the most important factor in choosing a route. Presence of a bicycle facility (especially a bike lane or separate path), the level of automobile traffic, pavement or riding surface quality, and presence of a bicycle facility on a bridge are also very important determinants. Furthermore, there are policy implications of these results for bicycle facility planning.
