This paper presents an analysis of an adaptive stated choice experiment in the Netherlands to quantify the influence of different factors in the access and egress mode choice to railway stations. For this purpose a sample of 1524 respondents was collected. Mixed logit choice models are estimated which include cost and time factors and variables factors describing the quality of stations and station environments. The main findings indicate that bicycle parking costs in the Netherlands play an important role in access mode choice. Furthermore, improvements in route quality are more important for cyclists than pedestrians as a determinant for access and egress mode choice. Costs and time of access modes are highly important in relation to the main mode choice. Particularly for the bicycle as feeder mode, the ratio of cost to time is a significant reason for dropping the train as main mode.
