The main target of this study is to examine the substitution effects of long-distance busesin Switzerland (50km+) and how they will affect mode choice of trains and cars. The study is based on a two-phase survey. In the first one, we try to capture the respondents’ travel behaviour through an online-access-panel, asking them for their journeys inside Switzerland within the last two months. The second phase focusses on their preferences, attitudes and willingness to pay for different means of transport. Given their stated journeys in part one, we construct a stated choice experiment to explore the trade-offs that the respondents make between long-distance modes by varying the number of changes, access/egress and travel times, comfort features and its prices. We will establish if respondents have strong preferences about their options. Based on the data that we are currently collecting, together with the recent Swiss mobility and transport Microcensus, we will estimate discrete choice models that allow us to calculate demand elasticities for the different modes considered. We will estimate elasticities for different types of origin-destination pairs, trip purposes and socio-demographic characteristics. Show more
