Abstract

This study focuses on the deterioration of urban environment caused by increase in the rate of acceleration of motorization and dispersion of urban facilities which promotes motorization. Car traffic in urban areas is growing rapidly due to increasing car ownership and increase of total travel distance as a result of dispersion of urban facilities. In this study, in order to evaluate dispersion of urban facilities and change of urban environment, the Landuse-Transport-Environment Model presented. This model can demonstrate urban form, travel and environmental loads. In the landuse section, urban form is simulated using the Equilibrium Landuse Model. Substitution of equilibrium price for bid p
