Predicting Bicycle Mode Choice for Trips to, from, and Within Mixed-Use Developments (12-2196)
The purpose of this study is to present a methodology for predicting the bike mode share for mixed-use developments (MXDs). Datasets were generated using household travel surveys and GIS databases for 239 mixed-use developments in six large and diverse metropolitan regions. Hierarchical modeling was used to estimate the likelihood of bike trips to/from/within mixed-use developments in terms of the 7D variables (density, diversity, design, destination accessibility, distance to transit, development scale, and demographics). MXDs with dense concentrations of population and jobs, balanced land uses, and dense urban street networks generate a greater share of bicycle trips. Bicycling facility planning, traffic impact assessment, climate action planning, and health impact assessment are possible areas of application.
