Bicycle Parking Demand Model for Combined Trips of Urban Rail Transit-Bicycle Chain (12-2839)
With China¡¯s large-scale construction of urban rail transit, using bicycle to transfer rail transit has become a common and efficient travel pattern. It can not only make full use of bicycle¡¯s advantage in short-distance travel, but also make up for the shortcomings of rail transit. In Shanghai, China, the rail-bicycle combined trips are increasing year by year. This will inevitably make corresponding requests on the bicycle parking facilities planning and construction. Therefore, a reasonable model to estimate the bicycle parking demand around the railway station is necessary. In this paper, based on the bicycle parking survey and questionnaire survey around the rail transit stations, the researchers analyzed and summarized the transfer characteristics of the metro-bicycle combined mode, and extracted the major influencing factors, such as passengers getting into the station in the morning rush hour, scale of residential area within the bicycle attractive region, the number of bus routes in the visible range of the station. After that, the researchers built the relationship between each factor and the amount of parking, and developed a model by multiple regressions. The model could be used to estimate the bicycle parking demand for the urban transit system, supporting the trips combined of subway-bicycle chain.
