Abstract

[automatically translated] In this paper, we describe the results of the analysis of transport demand for travel along the Palermo-Catania route, one of the most important connecting axes of the Sicilian transportation system, on which it is based a subsequent feasibility study of new connection rail corridors between the two poles. More specifically, it has investigated the sensitivity of the users of the study compared to the activation of new rail services, the best in terms of frequency and travel times for relations involving centers of Palermo, Catania and Enna. To this end, a survey was conducted on a sample of modal preferences of travelers to the reference using the technique stated preference. The result is a database with which it was developed an econometric model of modal choice, used to simulate the effects on the train so market share, competing with the private car and suburban buses, improved performance (in terms of timing and frequency) of rail transport. The simulations show that, in the context of the Palermo-Catania and Palermo-Enna links, prefigured the levels of rail service are able to attract significant flows of users; Instead, the train is so penalized if it provides for the possibility of a modal interchange with public transport by road, to reach the final goal. The simulations show that, in the context of the Palermo-Catania and Palermo-Enna links, prefigured the levels of rail service are able to attract significant flows of users; Instead, the train is so penalized if it provides for the possibility of a modal interchange with public transport by road, to reach the final goal.
