Residents of urban areas must endure daily movements in order to acquire goods and perform activities necessary to life. Goods also must be transported within the urban areas as a result of the market activities.

This paper presents the application of a methodology introduced initially for the prediction of route choice of bicycles, now adapted to motorcycles and trucks. The

The adaptation of the methodology allowed the improvement of the original analysis algorithm increasing the number of considered network attributes and adding a user related attribute: Value of Time. The case studies of Ho Chi Minh City and Tokyo produced satisfactory results relating the route choice behavior and the network attributes. As a result, the value of time for trucks in Tokyo and the parameters relating route choice and network attributes were obtained.
