A choice model, in general, is an operational form of a choice theory. As such, it serves several purposes:
  1. a.

    It enables testing the theory by, 1. identifying which variables contribute significantly to an explanation of observed behavior, and 2. determining the form of the relationship between behavior and explanatory variables.

  2. b.

    It enables to estimate behavioral parameters (e.g. value of time).

  3. c.

    It enables to predict behavior; how will travelers behave in certain situations.
