Abstract
Transfers in multimodal urban trips imply a disutility for users, who perceive them as a penalty when using public transport. It is therefore important to estimate the utility associated to transfers and the main factors affecting it, to allow policymakers to reduce users? perceived disutility and enhance their intention to use public transport. The aim of this paper is to develop a Stated Preference experiment as a means of estimating the penalty perceived by commuters when making transfers in multimodal urban trips. A web-based survey combining a Revealed Preferences and Stated Preferences survey was created using Ngene software, and an efficient design was applied to estimate multinomial logit models. The authors present here the first stage of the research, consisting of the design and results of the pilot survey of commuters travelling by metro or urban bus within the city of Madrid, Spain. The findings reveal a pure penalty independent of the variables in the model which increases with the number of transfers. Crowded transfers provide a disutility to commuters, which rises with the number of transfers involved in the route. Further research is needed to consolidate these results with those of a final survey.
