Modeling Route Choice Behavior of Chinese Toll Road Users Based on Structural Equation Model
Several toll road corridors were surveyed for route choice behavior study and the structural equation model was used to analyze the route choice behavior influenced by the factors of vehicle type, vehicle ownership, trip purpose, trip distance, trip time and cost. The results suggest that vehicle type, vehicle ownership and trip distance can all have impacts on the route choice behaviors, and the influences of the trip distance and the vehicle type on the route choice behaviors are the largest.
