COMMUTING AND AVERAGE JOURNEY TIMES. EVALUATION OF FOUR LAND USE ALTERNATIVES

PENDLING OCH MEDELRESETIDER. UTVAERDERING AV FYRA FYSISKA REGIONSSTRUKTURER

In a study by the Stockholm Regional Planning office (1975-1976), six land use alternatives for the year 2000 are presented. This paper presents an extensive evaluation of four of the alternatives in regard to the development of commuting within the region. Three forecasting methods are used: a neutral forecast (based on a neutral assessment of present commuting situation), a forecast based on random selection and a forecast based on minimization of mean travel time. The alternatives are then compared in three ways. First in regard to estimated mean travel time (both by private car and public transport system), and then in regard to the resulting modal split between the different housing areas. A detailed presentation is given of the results of the study together with a demonstration of the method used. /TRRL/
