Abstract

The transportation system around the globe is witnessing a dramatic change which possibly generating from the massive increase in the population. This contributed to a legitimate dilemma which is traffic congestion taking into consideration the accompanying problems that raised namely air pollution as well as traffic accidents. Public transportation is substantial and their importance reflects in both economic and social quality of each and every citizen life. Despite these facts, the public means of transportation is still to this day not the people's choice to perform their daily trips, this app lies, particularly, to private car users. The candid solution to this problem is to turn people's attention to public transportation system (bus and vanpool) and simulate them to abandon their private cars. This study works on a comparison between two mode choice models, Multinomial logistic regression (MNL) and Artificial neural network (ANN) for the purpose of prediction of the behavioural transportation of mode choice with the purpose of evaluation of the accuracy levels in the predictability in each model. The results show that artificial neural network readily outperformed the multinomial logistic regression in the predictability of mode choice.
