Abstract

The purpose of the present study is to understand the relationship between socio-demographic, attitude and mode choice behavior. Sample of 209 respondents was collected through questionnaires for a week period. Structural Equation Modeling using Partial Least Square approach was utilized to hypothesis testing. This study proved that the socio-demographic characteristics (age and car ownership) were positively and significantly related to attitudes, but family size has negatively effect. Socio-demographic characteristics (age and car ownership) as well as attitudes were positively and significantly related to travel mode choice. As the dominant factor affecting the mode choice, attitudes on cost, accessibility, safety and comfortablity of transportation modes are clearly a major consideration in the selection of modes of transportation. Therefore, as an effort to decrease the use of private vehicles (especially private cars), four aspects that need to be fixed are the cost, accessibility, safety and comfortability in public transportation, because those factors are the major concern for private car users based on research results.
