© 2018 Elsevier Ltd A recursive logit model is proposed for path choice modeling with transit smart card data in higher-frequency bus and rail services. In such circumstances, it is commonly assumed that passengers may arrive randomly to a stop and may behave according to a “strategy”; such a strategy is associated with a so-called “attractive” set of routes: a passenger selects a set of routes departing from the stop, and will board the next vehicle to depart from among that set of routes. We extend the conventional notion of attractive sets by introducing a measure of “attractiveness” that allows for randomness in the choice of attractive routes. The proposed model uses a link-based (recur..
