This paper is one of a series describing the methods and findings of a TRRL sponsored project to simulate organised car sharing. This volume describes the simulation model and its calibration. The model requires as input a description of each individual tripmaker within the system (there are 180000 such individuals in the study area under investigation). Using these individuals as actors, the model simulates, within a calibrated choice model, the decision of each of them in turn whether or not to apply to join a hypothesised car sharing scheme. The matching of such applicants to form potential car pools is then effected in a special routine. A second calibrated choice model then simulates the decisions by each of the applicants whether to enter an arrangement with any of the potential partners with whom they have been provisionally matched. A mutual evaluation of utilities then determines which arrangements will actually come to fruition. This approach has been particularly appropriate to the modelling of organised car sharing but can obviously provide the basis for a whole range of behaviourally orientated planning models. (TRRL)
