ACCESSIBILITY AS THE OBJECTIVE OF PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PLANNING: AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE MODEL

An analysis of the system to be planned is carried out. A comparison with a survey on the traffic and transportation models available in the literature, though very voluminous, reveals a lack of a general model-framework for planning public transportation in sparsely populated areas. A discussion is presented of how to evaluate optional plans for the physical and socio-economic structure of a region and concludes that this must be done by means of accessibility. A model is presented which describes the inter-dependence between, on one hand the demand of accessibility of the population, and on the other hand the transportation system, both public and private, and the location of facilities and residential areas. The applicability of some standard transportation and traffic models is discussed.
