Abstract: This paper discusses choice set generation and route choice model estimation for large-scale urban networks. Evaluating the effectiveness of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS) requires accurate models of how drivers choose routes based on their awareness of the roadway network and their perceptions of travel time. Many of the route choice models presented in the literature pay little attention to empirical estimation and validation procedures. In this paper, a route choice data set collected in Boston is described and the ability of several different route generation algorithms to produce paths similar to those observed in the survey is analyzed. The paper also presents estimation results of some route choice models recently developed using the data set collected. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2006
