The first agent-based model of greater Jakarta integrated with a mode-choice model

Agent-based models became popular in recent decades, as more traditional modeling approaches were not suitable to model emerging transportation modes and transport policies. However, creating a detailed scenario, which is the basis of the agent-based model and that represents the supply and the demand for a study area, is not trivial and requires substantial effort. This is even more the case when the study area is large and one that contains a large number of people living and performing activities in it. This is exactly the case for the region of Greater Jakarta, which is the subject of this research, with an area of approximately 8000 km² and 30 million people. Here the authors present the synthesis of the Greater Jakarta commuting scenario that can help future researchers in generating large-scale scenarios in regions where the data are scarce or not easily obtainable. First runs, using an agent-based model MATSim, are presented and can be used as a back-bone for future improvements of the Greater Jakarta scenario and investigation of different transport related questions for the area.
