An Integrated LUTI and DEA Procedure for Strategic Urban Transport Planning

A generic transport planning process is characterized by different planning dimensions and interactions among subjects involved. Planning dimensions concern time (for implementing the plan), space (area affected by the plan) and detail (in planning decisions). A process may be identified for the adoption of a single plan (internal process) and for progressing among different plans (external process). This paper proposes a general procedure which integrates a Land-Use Transport Interaction (LUTI) model and Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to support strategic urban transport planning. The procedure allows the authors to estimate effects of alternative policies and interventions and compare them in terms of efficiency. Alternative scenarios are expressed in terms of interventions. The LUTI model provides the values of effects related to the outputs produced in a generic scenario and the DEA model provides a measure of relative efficiency, in terms of distance from an efficient frontier. The paper reports an advancement in research to support strategic urban planning. Finally, an application in an urban area is conducted in order to test the potential of the overall procedure.
