Discrete choice theory has played a very important role in transportation modelling for the last 30 years. They are routinely being used to estimate the influence of all sorts of factors on travel (choice) behavior, and to predict mobility patterns and market shares for transport-related services. As such, they are indispensable for the quantitative underpinning of many transport policies and plans. Increasingly, software packages and tools are becoming available which facilitates the use of these models in real applications by scholars, students and practitioners.
