This paper studies the effects of traffic information on Seattle-area commuters. Models of commuters' route-change frequency, the duration of traffic delay needed to induce a route change, and the influence of pre-trip traffic information on departure-time choice, mode choice, and route choice are estimated. Two modeling techniques are used in these estimations: an ordered logit probability approach and a Weibull duration model with a heterogeneity correction term. The findings of these model estimations provide important insights into how traveler information systems should be designed, implemented, and marketed.
