Conference paper


To study the characteristics of urban residents travel is essential and of importance in designing urban transport system as well as to the city system reliability. Hence, in this paper, the major purpose is to propose a mathematical approach based on quantitative analysis of the combined weights in rough set method, which is to find the priority of influence factor in urban residents travel mode choice. As the result, we can not only get the rank of influence factor in urban residents travel mode choice, but also provide a new idea for extension the applications of rough set method.
