Mode choice modelling for the assessment of an international railway corridor

Authors:   Diego Crespo Pereira, Rosa Rios Prado, Oscar De Gregorio Vicente


When developing a model for multimodal transport planning, the mode choice component is a critical element since it estimates the shares of traffic flow which are absorbed by each competing alternative. This paper describes the steps followed in the mode choice modelling phase in the development of the transport model for the assessment of the Bolivian Central Bioceanic Railway Corridor (CFBC). The model integrates different levels of geographical resolution, alternatives from four competing modes of transport and different categories of freight.
