Development of a Conceptual Framework for Modeling train station choice under uncertainty for park and ride users
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of the study is to develop a conceptual framework for modeling the parkand ride (PnR) users’ departure station choice under uncertainty with consideration of threeuncertain variables: travel time to the departure station; parking search time and crowding ontrains. Research on station choice under uncertainty is systematically reviewed to providebackground to understand this study. A decision making process of train station choice and amethod to determine train station choice are developed, which lay a foundation for modelingframework. Finally, a group of utility functions of train station choice based on the uncertainvariables are developed under a discrete choice model framework using the prospect theory.This paper provides a theoretical guideline for modeling train station choice underuncertainty.

Chunmei, C.; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Smith, B.; Olaru, D.; Taplin, J.; Han, R. (2015)This paper presents a station choice model for park and ride (PnR) users based on uncertain parking attributes, such as parking search time (PST). In order to take into account uncertainty in PnR users’ choice process, a ...
Lin, Ting; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Robinson, Todd; Olaru, D.; Smith, B.; Taplin, J.; Cao, B. (2016)A train station catchment area delineates the spatial territory from which the users of a train station are drawn. The size and shape of this catchment can be influenced by a variety of factors, such as the transport ...
Logistic regression models for the nearest train station choice: A comparison of captive and non-captive stationsShao, C.; Xia, Jianhong (Cecilia); Lin, T.; Goulias, K.; Chen, C. (2014)We usually assume that each commuter is an efficient traveller, which means they maximize trip utility. From a spatial optimization perspective, a commuter might therefore choose the nearest station to reach their ...
