TRB’s National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Report 4: Intercity Passenger Rail in the Context of Dynamic Travel Markets explains the analytical framework and models developed to improve understanding of how current or potential intercity travelers make the choice to travel by rail. NCRRP Web-Only Document 2: Bibliography and Technical Appendices to Intercity Passenger Rail in the Context of Dynamic Travel Markets outlines materials used to develop NCRRP Report 4.
The Integrated Choice/Latent Variable (ICLV) model explores how demand for rail is influenced by not only traditional times and costs but also cultural and psychological variables. The spreadsheet-based scenario analysis tool helps users translate the data generated from the ICLV model into possible future scenarios that take into account changing consumer demand in the context of changing levels of service by competing travel modes.
