Disaggregated Car Fleets in Microscopic Travel Demand Modelling

Microscopic travel demand models take the characteristics of every individual person of the modeled population into account for computing the travel demand for the modeled region. The real world mobility of individuals strongly depends on the specific available car, if any. However, mode choice models usually take a standard average car as reference. This paper shows an integrated approach to model the travel demand with respect to car specific attributes. The proposed work uses a synthetic population for the German capital of Berlin and simulates the travel demand for different examples that replicate car specific changes in fuel price, fleet distribution and entrance restriction. Some of these car-specific measures influence the travel behavior on a level that cannot be modeled when using an average car at all. Furthermore, the results show significant changes in usage of specific car segments, which would be difficult to model using an averaged car.
