Abstract
This paper explores the potential role of extrinsic characteristics of individual trips (i.e. social influence variables, time frame and land use variables in the choice of transport mode. We consider the metropolitan area of Madrid where a generalized increase of Public transport fare has been implemented since May 2012. A sample of 250 individuals living in the MMA participated in a smartphone short panel survey, entering their travel data for an entire working week. A Mixed Logit model was estimated with this data to analyse the travel behavior after fare changes. Apart from classical explanatory variables, such as travel time and cost, gender, drive license and car ownership, the model incorporated directly land use variables, social influence variables, and panel effects correlations and which significantly increase goodness-of-fit. Results show that there are clearly different types of combinations of social interactions, land use and time frame combinations. Further data collection and analysis will be used to better understand how these combinations manifest themselves in travel decision-making.
