The objective of this study is to evaluate the potential benefits of a multimodal Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS). The propensity of auto commuters to switch to public transportation in response to unexpected traffic congestion is investigated using a detailed survey undertaken in the Golden Gate Bridge corridor in 1993. A stated preference analysis tied to the situation for which the commuting behavior was reported is used to estimate the propensity of travelers to divert to transit under a multimodal ATIS.
