Several previous attitudinal surveys indicated the importance of reliability of travel modes. This research identifies perceived reliability measures of urban transportation modes. These measures are included in a multinomial mode choice logit model for work trips in the Chicago area. The statistical significance of the reliability measures is evaluated as well as their importance relative to more traditional performance measures such as travel time and travel cost.
