Park and ride (P&R) facilities provide intermodal transfer between private vehicles and public transportation systems to alleviate urban congestion. This study developed a mathematical programming formulation for determining P&R facility locations. A recently developed Weibit-based model was adopted to represent the traveler choice behavior with heterogeneity. The model’s independence of irrelevant alternatives (IIA) property was explored and used to linearize its nonlinear probability. Some numerical examples are provided to demonstrate a feature of the proposed mixed integer linear programing (MILP). The results indicate a significant impact of route-specific perception variance on the optimal P&R facility locations in a real-size transportation network.
