Intercity Mode Choice Modelling: Considering the Intracity Transport Systems with Application to the Jakarta-Bandung Corridor

Lita Sari Barus, Hipolito Martell-Flores, Sigit Pranowo Hadiwardoyo, Jean-Louis Batoz



The choice among modes
of intercity transport depends on conditions of not only intercity transport
modes but also intracity transport in both the departure city and the arrival
city. Intracity transport conditions might be advantageous for one intercity
mode and disadvantageous for others. Intercity and intracity transport
conditions are complex and need to be approached systemically. This study
proposes an approach based on the passengers’ preferences. The logit model was
adapted to evaluate the transport modes’ choices in competition. This model is
called the “Adapted Mixed Multinomial Logit Model” (AMML). It was applied on
the Jakarta-Bandung corridor in both directions. It contributes to a complete
approach for intercity transport mode choice by considering the influence of
the intracity transport conditions in both the departure and arrival cities.
The results proved that the choice of intercity transport mode depends not only
on its own quality of service but also, importantly, on that of the intracity
transport systems.
