Validation of travel demand models, although recognised as important, is seldom undertaken. This study adds to the scarce literature in this field by undertaking an external validation of a multi-modal transit route choice model. The model was estimated using smart card data for the urban transit network of Amsterdam before the introduction...

Perceived travel times of travelers are usually longer than actually realized travel times, implying that passengers’ experience of travel time savings is different from objectively calculated savings. This study provides additional empirical evidence on this topic, by comparing the passengers’ perceived travel times reported in an (online)...

We evaluate a large scale network change in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where a regional network of many direct bus lines is replaced by a new metro line as a trunk line and buses serving as feeder lines. For the analysis we use realized trip times from automated vehicle location data and ridership details from smart card data. In the new...

Capturing unobserved correlation between overlapping routes is a non-trivial problem in route choice modelling. For urban transit networks, research so far has been inconclusive on how this overlap is perceived by travellers. We estimate a series of path size correction logit (PSCL) models to account for alternative specifications of route...

Circuity of transit networks, defined as the ratio of network to Euclidean distance traveled from origin to destination stop, has been known to influence travel behavior. In addition to the longer time spent in travel, for networks where fare is based on distance traveled, higher circuity also means higher fare for the same Euclidean distance...

The north-south metro line in Amsterdam became operational in summer 2018, accompanied by changes to the existing bus, metro, and tram network in the city. In this paper we undertake an ex-post analysis of the transportation impacts of the network change. Using two sets of smart card transactions, of 5-6 weeks each, and corresponding...

De Noord/Zuidlijn (NZL) is een nieuwe metroverbinding die sinds juli 2018 de noord- en zuidzijde van Amsterdam met elkaar verbindt. In een omvangrijke, vier jaar durende, studie worden de vervoerkundige, ruimtelijke en economische effecten onderzocht. Deze paper beschrijft de effecten op reizigers, reistijden, aantal overstappen en...

Urban transit networks typically consist of multiple modes and the journeys may involve a transfer within or across modes. Therefore, the passenger experience of travel time reliability is based on the whole journey experience including the transfers. Although the impact of transfers on reliability has been highlighted in the literature, the...

In daily practice, public transport authorities and operators are constantly searching for improvements in public transport operations. To this end, it is necessary to identify inefficiencies and bottlenecks in the current public transport services. In this paper, we propose a method to automatically detect bottlenecks in the public transport...

Due to reduced budgets, higher political expectations and increasing competition between operators, there is growing pressure on public transport companies and authorities to improve their operational efficiency. It is thus of utter importance for them to be able to identify inefficiencies, bottlenecks and potentials in their public transport...

The most important aspects on which passengers base their choice whether to travel by public transport are the perceived travel time, costs, reliability and comfort. Despite its importance, comfort is often not explicitly considered when predicting demand for public transport. In this paper, we include comfort level in a modelling framework by...

In the aim for a more sustainable transport system, governments try to stimulate multimodal trip making by facilitating smooth transfers between modes. The assessment of related multimodal policy measures requires transport models that are capable of handling the complex nature of multimodality. This complexity sets requirements for adequate...

Door de introductie van de OV-Chipkaart komen er grote hoeveelheden data over reizigersstromen in het OV beschikbaar. Naast data over de voertuigprestaties (via GOVI bijv.) hebben de inzichten uit deze reizigersdata een enorm potentieel voor de optimalisatie van het OV-product. Dit artikel verkent de mogelijkheden om, de privacy van reizigers...

Public transport (PT) is important, because the current traffic system faces well known problems like congestion, environmental impact and use of public space. To be able to assess the effects of policy measures properly, it is necessary to model the behavior of the (PT) traveler in a realistic way. An aspect that lacks realism in a lot of...

Nowadays, transport demand models do not explicitly evaluate the impacts of service reliability of transit. Service reliability of transit systems is adversely experienced by users, as it causes additional travel time and unsecure arrival times. Because of this, travelers are likely to perceive a higher utility from higher reliable transport...

The current traffic system faces well known problems like congestion, environmental impact and use of public space. Public transport (PT) is an important mode to alleviate these problems. To be able to assess the effects of policy measures properly, it is important to model the behaviour of the (public transport) traveller in a realistic way.

There is a growing pressure on urban public transport companies and authorities to improve efficiency, stemming from reduced budgets, political expectations and competition between operators. In order to find inefficiencies, bottlenecks and potentials in the public transport service, it is useful to learn from recorded operational data. We first...
