Modelling the combined mode split and traffic assignment (CMSTA) problem is essential to capture the travelers’ behaviors and predict the flow distribution in multimodal transportation networks. In this paper, a general fixed-point model that combines the CNL-based mode split and the VI-based traffic assignment is developed to formulate the CMSTA problem in a more realistic multimodal network. The transit common line problem and asymmetric travel cost are considered. A new solution algorithm that integrated with several effective methods and strategies is proposed to solve the fixed-point model in large-scale networks. Numerical results show the effectiveness of the proposed model and algorithm.
