Transportation models are currently unable to reflect adequately the impacts of policy and investment decisions on people's well-being and overall quality of life. This paper presents a multivariate ordered-response probit model that is able to capture the influence of activity-travel characteristics on subjective well-being while accounting for unobserved individual traits and attitudes that predispose people in relation to their emotional feelings.
