Understanding the characteristics of regional passenger travel mode selection can provide a theoretical basis for the traffic management to formulate relevant policies. In this paper, the characteristics of passenger travel mode selection are analyzed, and the micro and macro factors affecting the choice of travel modes are determined. Based on travel cost, time, safety, comfort, convenience, and other factors, the generalized cost function of passenger travel mode selection is constructed, and the function parameters are calibrated. The research results can provide theoretical support for the formulation of relevant policies.
