Estimation of Travel Time in Urban Streets Using Various Modes
Serin Sara Roy , Anil R
Travel time reliability is one of the most understood measures for road users to perceive the current traffic conditions. It helps them to make smart decisions on route choices so as to avoid unnecessary delays. Travel time information to travelers always helps to better manage trips. It helps in making various decisions, such as: route choice, departure time choice etc. and helps to reduce traffic congestion and travel delay. Establishing a relationship between travel times of various modes is always a better solution. The objective of this study is to find out a statistical relationship between public transit and private cars and vice versa. Travel time data of sections of the study routes were collected using GPS and this information was used for representing the present traffic situation. Linear regression models were developed to predict travel times of modes, one with respect to another and travel time measures were validated.
