Abstract

Urban transport problems have become more widespread and severe than ever in both industrialised and developing countries alike. Facing this situation, there is a real need in developing new strategies and innovative tools for transportation and town-planning, as well as economic activities (public or private), within the area. The current tools and systems for solving transport problems are based on using several sub-management tools related to transportation infrastructures, town-planning, road traffic, environmental effects…, which are not sufficiently in interaction. These solutions lead to a severe handicap for urban homogenous and mastered development. That is why the \“Urban mobility” has to be rethought. The main idea in this article concerns the development of a multimodal, prospective and flexible tool for the sustainable development of urban areas, which could help the decision makers in urban transportation fields. Keywords: integrated transportation planning, transportation data model, transport modelling, decision help, and sustainable development. 1 Introduction Urban transport problems have become more widespread and severe (Ortuzar and Willumsen [24]). The old problems, such as congestion, pollution accidents and financial deficits, are now coupled with land use and environmental problems. This situation reduces significantly the effectiveness of the transport system. Thus, several researches have been undertaken in order to solve them. Therefore, the problems still grow and the planning methodologies developed in
