Abstract

Whereas psychological-measurement procedures have been used frequently to enrich the variable set for mode-choice models, most uses have lacked either methodological rigor or adequate range and definition of concepts (attributes). Here, a rigorous procedure from psychology was applied and defined nine concepts, measured by 68 items. These items were used in a survey of Boston commuters and the results factor-analyzed to recover eight of the nine original concepts, five of which gave good reliability scores. -from Authors
