AN AGGREGATE URBAN TRANSPORTATION MODEL: ECONOMETRIC SPECIFICATION

Many transportation researchers have concerned themselves with a single problem. They have devoted a great deal of effort to estimating the user and socio-economic impacts of routes. Their work presumes a description of the location and physical capacities of a set of existing and proposed routes. This route-specific approach requires much engineering design work before estimates of user and socio-economic impacts can be made. When specific routes are not important, estimating the total travel volumes of various modes within a region can be approached more simply. The purpose of this paper is to derive a model of aggregate transportation relationships within an urban region.
