TSM Strategies and Evaluation of Traffic Performance - Special Reference to a Case Study of Reversible Lane Technique.
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 4, issue 1, 1986, Pages 3~11
One important element of a systematic approach to the management and control of the flow of people over an urban street network is the monitoring and evaluation of system performance. The nature of TSM strategies that, in part, differentiates them from traditional long-range transportation improvement alternatives is that they are less costly, are more quickly implemented and modified, and are often oriented toward sub-area problems which must be addressed at a more microscopic level of analysis. These factors suggest that pre-implementation evaluations of alternative TSM actions will often have to rely on quick-turn around, manual methods of analysis to guide the choice of which management action should be implemented. This paper was prepared to focus on the definition and importance of TSM, specifically associated with monitoring and evaluating traffic performance in the context of TSM startegies. A simple case study of reversible lane technique was presented. The purposes of the case study is to illustrate the methodology of evaluating TSM strategies and demonstrate to identify the benefit from the reversible lane technique, which may otherwise be overlooked in real world. Applying the reversible lane technique to Sam-Il elevate highway, it was found to be a very promising low cost alternative to reduce total travel time(or delay) and fuel consumption.
Multidimensional Scaling of User Preferences for the Transportation Modes in Seoul.
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 4, issue 1, 1986, Pages 12~27
This study examined user preferences toward transportation modes in Seoul. Two multidimensional scaling models, the ideal point and vector models, were applied to data on mode preferences of 114 adults in the metropolitan area. While both models produced fairly similar results, the vector model performed slightly better than the other in terms of interpretability of the results. The transport attributes elicited are comfort, flexibility, travel cost, travel time, privacy, and safety; among which comfort is salient most. The comfort variable is a multi-faceted attribute in nature. The variations of attribute preferences are most significant between the gender groups as well as worker/nonworker groups. In particular, male workers, female workers and female nonworkers form three distinctive market segments. An unidimensional scaling of the preference data reveals that subway, auto-driver, and subscription bus modes are preferred most, whereas motorcycle and bicycle least. The other modes of express bus, taxt, auto-passenger, bus and walk rank intermediately. An examination of how preference orders vary among modal groups hints that users align their stated attitudes to their choice in order to reduce cognitive dissonance.
Access Time Distribution of Subway Users
Journal of Korean Society of Transportation, volume 4, issue 1, 1986, Pages 28~40
Accurate subway demand estimation which is essential for better route selection can be achieved by the exact definition of the influence sphere of subway station. The influence was derived implicitly from the analysis of access time to the station for the cases of Seoul. Access time distribution was investigated by trip purposes, by age, by income, by sex, by travel distance, by kinds of thickets, by the location of station for the analysis of relationship between access time and socio-economic characteristics or urban structure. The difference of average access time between direct access trip and transfer trip which is found 8.6 minutes and 6.1 minutes respectively also investigated. The small difference implies poor transfer system of Seoul subway. 83.1% of subway users are coming from the distance of 10minutes' walk and average access time is 7.8minutes as a whole.
