Integrated urban transportation and land use modeling by application of system dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
The feasibility and utility of the Dynamic Urban Land Use - Transportation Model are demonstrated through the use of a hypothetical urban region. Given a set of initial conditions, the model simulates the choice behaviors that determine future population movement, employment opportunities, and housing availability, and allocates these elements to zones. Mode and route selection for the home-to-work journey are then simulated and become inputs for future spatial allocation. Analysis of the effects on the urban system as a result of a variety of transportation and land use policies is included to demonstrate the usefulness of the methodology as a decision making tool.
