The purpose of this research is to develop a characterization of routes and to use this characterization to investigate differences among routes. We develop a measure of dissimilarity (from which route similarity is obtained) between pairs of routes as a function of the absolute difference in subjective or objective route attribute values. The relative importance of each attribute in determining route dissimilarity is defined in terms of the relative importance of the same attributes for overall route quality or attractiveness. We also develop measures to assess the driver's level of compliance with route advice from an Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) based on the link characterization of routes and on the characterization of routes in terms of their attributes.
