In much of Switzerland, quality public transport makes season tickets legitimate substitutes for a car; similar patterns of accessibility provided by both modes create a strong correlation of accessibility measures. We propose a principal component analysis of the accessibility measures to extract as much information as possible. We interpret the principal components obtained as: general accessibility, comparatively better accessibility by public transport and comparatively better job accessibility. The new accessibility variables are used in a model of car and season ticket ownership and the number of car, public transport and non-motorized trips. These outcomes are jointly estimated with a probit-based model for mixed types of outcomes because we anticipated simultaneous choices and choices dependent on each other. We find that greater levels of general accessibility, comparatively better accessibility by public transport and comparatively better job accessibility increase the probability of season ticket ownership, while the probability of car ownership decreases. We realize that ownership and use must be jointly modeled to consistently estimate the structural effect of mobility tool ownership on its use Show more
