Abstract

In order to evaluate long-term impacts on travel demand due to changes in transport supply (e.g. construction of new roads or new underground railways) it is not possible to disregard the effects that such changes have on housing and employment locations (i.e. land-use and transport interactions). In this paper a system of analytical models dealing with the complex interactions between transportation and urban activities systems is presented. The overall framework consists of integrated submodels simulating in turn travel demand, residential location and activity location choices, based on a behavioral approach consistent with Random Utility theory. Interactions between components o
