Urban simulation with alternative road pricing scenarios

Road pricing scenarios in the Lyon Urban Area in France are simulated with the land use framework UrbanSim interacted with the transportation model MOSART. The reference scenario 2000–2030 is compared with four alternatives of mobility cost increase: the implementations of urban tolls and distance based charging. The dynamics of spatial distribution of population, jobs, residential development and housing prices is analysed with multinomial logit and regression. The authors conclude that the UrbanSim application in Lyon is capable to capture changes in transport policy on urban development simulating these effects at geographical dimension and thus providing information useful for comprehensive transport policy.
