Influencing Intercity Mode Choice Behavior in Libya

Manssour A. Abdulsalam Bin Miskeen and Riza Atiq Abdullah Bin O. K. Rahmat

Abstract—Libya is one of the rich developing countries out of oil revenues. The discovery of oil contributed to a dramatic change and a burden on all public utilities and facilities, especially the transportation system. Increased traffic congestion, road accidents on intercity highways, and environment pollution have been the negative impacts. The time is ripe for a policy to simultaneously improve intercity public transport and control car ownership. The current study is to identify trip-influential parameters and their countermeasures to shift travel modes. The shift may be caused by a reduction in airplane and intercity bus travel time and cost. The suitability of intercity mode choice models and travel reasons are to investigate. The collection of data is conducted through revealed and stated preference surveys handed out to intercity travelers between four major cities in Libya. Their demographic details are highly important. Based on such details, mode choice behavior and discrete choice models will be developed. The results are hoped to assist decision-makers on all levels to allocate resources wisely to public transportation improvement.

Index Terms—Intercity mode choice behavior, modal shift, disaggregate analysis, travel behavior analysis, revealed and stated preferences survey, intercity transport.
