  13. Summary statistics from the 1981 External Cordon Survey provided ratios for all external trip types In 1981 it was found that 5.9% of external trips were through trips with no stops in Calgary or the region The impact of through traffic on regional traffic is relatively small 1981 External Cordon Survey

  14. Model Selection A simple growth factor trip distribution model was considered but rejected due to its disadvantages. Advantages: - Simple - Direct use of observed values Disadvantages: - Requires extensive data (therefore expensive) - Accuracy of results are heavily influenced by accuracy of input trip matrix - Components of input trip matrix with zero in cells continue to have zero in solution - Preserving patterns in observed behaviour - only applicable for short term planning horizon - Changes in transport cost ignored - therefore of limited use when analysing policies involving new modes, new links, pricing changes and/or new regulations

  15. A gravity model is appropriate if the assumptions made are acceptable for the situation modelled The general expression for the Gravity Model comes from: Analogy approach isbased on Newton's gravitational law – estimates trips without using observed trip pattern directly (synthetic). Entropy-maximization and Intervening Opportunities –two other approaches to form a gravity model The generalized cost function must reflect the influences of relevant factors. Model Selection G * m1* m2 F = ----------------------- r2 F • Calibration of a gravity model involves: • -Selecting a functional form for the function • -Selecting the variables to include in the function • -Estimating values for the associated coefficients

  16. Transportation Zone Variables Distance Population Employment Decisions regarding which variables to combine for the utility functions were made independently of the t-statistic analysis. Distance between internal TZ and external entry/exit points was calculated directly from the model network Population and Employment values for internal zones were used to develop general attraction ratios in the Logit Gravity Model calculations.

  17. Utility Function A linear function that assigns utility values to the trip maker alternatives is called a utility function: U i = V ( a, i ) + E ( a, i ) or : U i = F1 *X1i + F2 *X2i +….. Fn*Xni +… where: V ( a, i ) – the measurable conditioning component of the utility individual i associates with alternative a, E ( a, i ) – the error component of the utility individual i associates with alternative a

  18. Utility Function General formula for the utility function chosen is: U i = a * Ln(Attr i ) + b * Distance i Where: a, b - parameters to be estimated Attr i - weighted attraction factor Distance i - distance between TZ Using different mathematical combinations for selected variables, alternative utility functions were examined.

  19. General Logit Expression The logit expression could be presented in the following form: Regardless of the magnitude of the coefficients of the variable values, this model will always produce values in the range 0 to 1. exp( l V(a*,i )) Pi* = S exp( l V(a ,i )) a  A Pi* is a PROBABILITY that trip maker alternative a * is selected out of full set of alternatives A being considered

  20. By combining the logit expression with a utility function that assigns utility values to the trip maker alternatives, we created a logit gravity model formula: Logit Gravity Trip Distribution Model exp (a * Ln(Attr i ) + b * Distance i) Tei = Te * --------------------------------------------------- S i exp(a * Ln(Attr i ) + b * Distance i)

  21. Constants Determination Maximum likelihood technique was used for constant determination The A-logit computer program is used for the calibration of utility functions Some of the outputs are: 1) Initial likelihood 2) Final value of likelihood 3) r2(0) - "Rho-Squared" with respect to zero 4) r2(C) - "Rho -Squared" with respect to constants 5) Standard error 6) T - Ratio

  22. Model Quality of Fit The quality of fit of the logit model could be considered by using a goodness-of-fit index labeled as r2. The following is the mathematical definition of r2 : r2(0)= 1 -L (K*) - N L (0) Where: L (K*) – log-likelihood for model with the full vector of parameters K* L (0) - log-likelihood for model with no parameters, where all parameters are set to 0 N – number of coefficients in estimated models The r2(0) index is used in the same way that the R2 is used with linear regression models. Larger values indicate a better fit.

  23. The mathematical definition for the t-ratio is: If the absolute value of the t-ratio is greater than 1.96 than there is a less than 5% chance that the associated difference is due to random effects only The Zero Hypotheses Test t - ratio [K(1)] = _ ___K(1)_______ {VAR [K (1)]} 0.5 The t-ratio is used to test the zero hypotheses that there is no difference between a given parameter K (1) and 0. If a given parameter is not significantly different from 0 it is not going to be used in the utility function because it has no influence on the choice behavior of a trip maker.

  24. Results In absence of the field data it was hard to find attributes and/or variables that influence trip maker decisions. Even though decisions regarding choice of variables combined for the utility functions were made independently of the t-statistic analysis, the logic behind the gravity model gave us a lot of comfort in choosing the distance and the attraction between transportation zones as variables. Results obtained from statistical analyses in this assignment suggest that the model was reasonable.

  25. Journeys originating outside the region and destined to a TZ within the region Final logit formula for the logit gravity model: External - Internal Trips Ui = 0.6589 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.07737 * Distancei [1] (2.1) (-5.7) exp (0.6589 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.07737 * Distancei) Tei = Te * ------------------------------------------------------------- [2] S i exp (0.6589 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.07737 * Distancei) The coefficient estimates signs were consistent with what would be expected in case corresponding variable values were changed. For example, if distance is increased then that alternative would be less attractive, so the coefficient for distance is negative.

  26. Journeys originating from a TZ within the region destined outside the region Final logit formula for the logit gravity model: Internal - External Trips Ui = 0.4744 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.06328 * Distancei [3] (1.3) (-3.7) exp (0.4744 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.06328 * Distancei) Tie = Te * ------------------------------------------------------------- [4] S i exp (0.4744 * Ln(Attr i) – 0.06328 * Distancei)

  27. Represents through traffic in the model 1981 External Cordon Survey was used to obtain the percentage of the regional through traffic External - External Trips Tee = S Te* 0.059 It was found that 5.9% of the trips were through trips with no stop in Calgary or the Region. A simple adjustment of the Logit Gravity Model is appropriate to reflect the overall influence of the through traffic.

  28. Questions? Authors: Dr. John Douglas HUNT Zoran CARKIC Presentation prepared by: Nina GANCHEV Zoran CARKIC With limited resources to do an external travel survey, the logit gravity model was found appropriate for the situation modelled.
