Modelling mode choice within couples

Abstract : We analyze couples mode choice, with an application in Paris region. When spouses’ commuting decisions are assumed to be independent – the standard assumption – the model poorly reproduces intra-household decisions. We set up a model of joint decision, which provides more plausible results and exhibits a greater predictive power. We estimate the determinants of the bargaining power (spouses’ age, nationality, type of job contract, tenure status and number of children) using a collective model. To control remaining endogeneity issues, we finally model the joint choice of car ownership and mode choice. Values of time are computed for driving alone and together.
