Stated Preferences techniques are methodologies based on statements made by interviewees about their preferences in different choice contexts, real, hypothetical or experimental. Therefore, an important innovation is introduced: the possibility to consider choice alternatives not available at the time of the surveys. These techniques have been adopted for demand models calibration to predict the choices made by users and their preferences variations while the choice context changes. Particularly, some Multinomial Logit mode choice models have bee
