MSC Thesis Opportunity- Impact of reliability and crowding on public transport users’ choices

MSc Thesis: Impact of reliability and crowding on public transport users’ choices

The purpose of this project is to find the impact that reliability has on travellers’ public transport alternative choice. To do so, a choice experiment of stated preferences will be carried out. In this experiment, each alternative will have different values of speed, frequency, headway regularity and average occupation. This experiment has already been designed and is currently conducted in Santiago de Chile. The attribute values will have to be determined for the Dutch context (e.g. Amsterdam metro or Dutch Railways) and a series of choice model estimations will be performed to establish the trade off between variables and the value of reliability. Results will be compared to findings from Santiago de Chile where crowding is prevalent.
