THE INTEGRATION OF ACTIVITY AND TRANSPORTATION ANALYSES FOR USE IN PUBLIC DECISION-MAKING

A growing number of transportation decision-makers recognize the potential of activity-orientated policies (e.g. Variable working hours) for use in achieving a variety of public goals from the reduction of congestion to increasing air quality. This article contributes to meeting the resulting need for analysis of alternative activity-based policies, so that decisions about the best application of such policies can be made. After a discussion of prior studies in which activity policies have been examined, an empirical example is presented of how an activity-oriented approach could be employed to analyze future conditions. The ramifications of an activity approach for planning practice are then outlined.(a)
