SOME PROBLEMS WITH URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING MODELS

THE PAPER DEALS WITH THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING DATA TO A FORM THAT PROMOTES DECISIONS REGARDING INVESTMENT AND POLICES. IT DISREGARDS SAMPLE DESIGN AND EXECUTION, FORMATTING AND MANIPULATING THE DATA, FORMULATING STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES, AND POSTULATING THE POLICIES USEFUL FOR CARRYING THEM OUT. THE POLITICAL PROCESS IS SIMILARLY IGNORED. THE FOLLOWING MAJOR TOPICS ARE ADDRESSED: URBAN TRAVEL MODELS, MODAL CHOICE ANALYSIS, AN ABSTRACT RESPECIFICATION OF THE TRAVEL DEMAND PROBLEM, STATISTICAL PROBLEMS IN TRAVEL DEMAND MODELS (STRUCTURAL PROBLEMS, FORECASTING PROBLEMS, AND DATA PROBLEMS), AND BEFORE AND AFTER STUDIES OF TRAVEL DEMAND.
