The dynamics of the personal travel system

The paper presents a dynamic interaction model which takes an overview of total travel. This has been developed by shell Australia in order to explore the effects of increasing affluence, government policy and other factors on future energy requirements for the transport of people. The model simulates future travel, year by year, allowing for feedback effects such as congestion, pollution and the marginal value of time. Estimates are made of personal mobility by considering the demand for travel and modal choice. The dominant role of the care is emphasised. The impact of income and government policy on the demand for travel and on modal choice is evaluated. The paper discusses the structure of the model and the relationships used therein. Preliminary conclusions from the use of the model are presented. (A)
