Abstract: 

Travel behaviour models serve as important tools to understand what factors affect trip generation and preferred mode of travel in different contexts. These models can be used to quantify the impacts and assess the consequences of development plans and policy actions. Growing populations and the increase in travel demand warrant investigation into determinants of travel behaviour that can guide policy changes and infrastructure investments. This thesis uses two cross-sectional datasets containing various socio-demographic and land-use attributes from 2015 and 2019. Trip-generation propensities for transit and automobile modes are predicted using a bivariate ordered probit approach which enables the determining of factors affecting the trip-generation propensity of each mode while establishing the correlation between their propensities. Further, a multinomial logit model is estimated to investigate the determinants of mode choice for home-based discretionary trips.
