A mode choice decision structure incorporating traveler attitudes toward modes and situational constraints is investigated. The major hypothesis tested is that mode choice is determined primarily by situational constraints, such as auto ownership and income, secondly by the quality of alternative modes.The structure of the mode choice process is analyzed with respect to (1) applicability of certain choice criterion forms; (2) psychological weighting of modal attributes in the choice criterion… 
Mode choice prediction using attitudinal data: A procedure and some results
AbstractA procedure is presented for using data on travelers' attitudes to predict changes in choice of transportation mode accompanying changes in the characteristics of the modes. The
ATTITUDE VERSUS GENERAL HABIT -- ANTECEDENTS OF TRAVEL MODE CHOICE /
A model of travel mode choice is tested by means of a survey among 199 inhabitants of a village. Car choice behavior for a particular journey is predicted from the attitude toward choosing the car
FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS OF MODE CHOICE
This paper develops a relatively new paradigm for mode-choice behavior modeling. The paradigm emphasizes functional form by establishing functions that relate subjective evaluations of transportation
A Study of the Importance of Generalized Attributes in Shopping Choice Behaviour
TLDR
The results demonstrate that generalized attributes derived from attitudinal information are significant inputs into an individual's choice of shopping area, and policies which focus upon the time, safety, and parking availability components vis-à-vis comfort aspects of the shopping excursion will be more effective in obtaining desired changes in the existing pattern of travel.
Low-income Commuters'Mode Choice Utilizing Attitude-behavior Model
To analyze modal choice behavior of low income commuters and reveal the influence of individual's socio-demographics, activity attributes and latent attitude variables on mode choice, an integrated
The importance of attitudes in the decision to use mass transit
This paper reports the results of tests of the hypotheses that attitudinal variables are important in mode choice decisions and that they can significantly increase the explanatory power of
A multivariate analysis of socioeconomic and attitudinal factors predicting commuters’ mode of travel
A random sample of workers was surveyed to assess the influence of different variables thought to play a role in the decision to commute by a particular travel mode. Univariate analyses revealed
The influence of habit formation on modal choice —a Heuristic model
Most modal split models have been based on the assumption of rational behaviour in an individual's choice evaluation of the generalised costs of modal alternatives. This paper integrates conceptual
The relationship between transportation perceptions and behavior over time
The aim of this paper is to discuss cross-lagged panel analysis in terms of the causal inferences it generates about the relationship of beliefs about modes and mode choice behavior. Frequencies of

Attitude measurement and prediction of behavior: an evaluation of conditions and measurement techniques.
TLDR
This paper reanalyzes the relation of attitude measures to other behavior from a methodological point of view and suggests that the degree of correspondence observed is at least a function of the measurement technique used and the extent to which the criterion behavior constitutes action within the range of common experience.
