Abstract

In this paper we study the Multimodal Network Design Problem (MNDP); this problem arises when a decision maker (e.g. traffic authority) can operate on different transportation modes simultaneously. For this problem we formulate a general multimodal network design model from which descend multimodal and monomodal network design submodels. Possible solution approaches and research perspectives are identified. This paper, therefore, provides a general framework on multimodal and monomodal network design problems and their modeling. 1 Introduction The monomodal network design problems are widely studied in literature, as for private transportation system (e.g. Billheimer & Gray [2], Chen & Alfa [6], Davis [7], Le Blan
