Quality of Service on Freeway Facilities

Although the concept of Level of Service for freeways is usually defined in terms of users perceptions, there have been very few studies that have sought drivers or passengers views about what is important to them. Such information is particularly important for evaluating extended trips on freeways, as opposed to a single section or segment. Not only is such information valuable for improving the Highway Capacity Manual, but it is also important in establishing appropriate criteria for assessing ITS proposals. This project aims at identifying the most important determinants of drivers' perception of the quality of service on freeway facilities.
