Currently, modal split modeling is done mainly by means of disaggregated mode choice models. The almost absolute dominance of multinomial and nested logit models over other mode choice models among applied transportation modelers is attributable to their theoretical soundness, to their simple and understandable analytical structure, and to the calibration procedures that have been developed. Typical urban transport systems, however, are characterized by a variety of modes including private…

A theoretical analysis of the cross-nested logit model
TLDR
It is formally proved that the Cross-Nested Logit model is indeed a member of the GEV models family, and it is proposed to estimate the model with non-linear programming algorithms, instead of heuristics proposed in the literature.
Normalization and correlation of crossnested logit models
Improving the quality of demand forecasts through cross nested logit: a stated choice case study of airport, airline and access mode choice
Airport choice models have been used extensively in recent years to assist the transport planning in large metropolitan areas. However, these studies have typically focussed solely on airports within
Modeling a Multinomial Logit Model of Intercity Travel Mode Choice Behavior for All Trips in Libya
In the planning point of view, it is essential to have mode choice, due to the massive amount of incurred in transportation systems. The intercity travellers in Libya have distinct features, as
Comparative Study of Logit and Weibit Model in Travel Mode Choice
TLDR
Six discrete choice models for travel mode choice are discussed based on data of Swiss metro, which includes multinomial Logit model, mult inomial WeibIt model, and derived models, which outperform the Logit-based and Weibit models.
DISCRETE CHOICE MODELING OF COMBINED MODE AND DEPARTURE TIME
Typical daily decision-making process of individuals regarding use of transport system involves mainly three types of decisions: mode choice, departure time choice and route choice. This paper
Modeling of Intercity Travel Mode Choice Behavior for Non-Business Trips within Libya
TLDR
The proposed model elucidates car/air transport users' behavior and investigates their responses to the scenario of enhancing intercity transport, based on a case of a diminution in airplane out-of-vehicle travel time.
