The literature on urban transportation planning emphasizes mainly on cities and neglects suburb areas. This study will fill the part of the knowledge gap by focusing on passengers' mode choice behavior in the suburb area. By using microsimulation model, aggregate data are obtained. The survey gives us disaggregate data collected from 975 respondents who have different attributes. These attributes include different age, income, driving license status, number of vehicle per household and employment situation. They choose the mode, which has various features such as different travel time and travel cost for the same distance. The result of the discrete choice model shows that the effect of each explanatory variable on mode choice is different for each trip purpose. For instance, 12 to 55 years old passengers on home-based work (HBW) and home-based other (HBO) trips prefer to choose public transit, but on home-based school (HBS) trips, prefer to select subscription bus.
