Combination of Macroscopic and Microscopic Transport Simulation Models: Use Case in Cyprus

The present paper presents the transportation planning methodology applied in the city of Nicosia, Cyprus, within the framework of Nicosia’s “Integrated Mobility Master Plan”. Unique characteristics of the capital of Cyprus, such as the sparse coverage, low service quality and even lower market penetration of the public transport network, the inadequate parking policy applied and the car-centred mobility culture of the local citizens have provided the motivation for a “redesign” of the classic four-step transport modelling process by combining static and dynamic, macroscopic and microscopic transportation analysis models, in order to support the city’s decision makers.
