The dynamic route choice model with departure time was carried out in a multi-modal transportation network, in which the combined travel mode was considered. The multi-modal transportation network was built based on the super network theory and the expansion technique. The simultaneous departure time and the route choice preference were described in a Logit model from the view of path formulation, as well as analyzing the equilibrium conditions. A variational inequality model was proposed to be equivalent to the equilibrium condition and was solved by a direct algorithm based on a dynamic stochastic network loading method. The efficient of the model and the algorithm were validated by a numerical example. The results show that the proposed model can not only describe the route choice behavior in the multimodal transportation network, but also get the departure time, which comes closer to the reality and has good suitability.
