A SYSTEM MODEL FOR PREDICTING THE EFFECT OF ENERGY RESOURCES ON URBAN MODAL SPLIT

USING REGIONAL AND STATE LEVEL DATA, INCLUDING OBSERVATIONS DURING THE RECENT ENERGY CRISIS, THE METHODOLOGY AND FIRST GENERATION OF A SYSTEM MODEL FOR PREDICTING IMPACT LEVELS OF FUEL SHORTAGES UPON MODAL SPLIT ARE REPORTED. THE DATA TO SUCH A SYSTEM MODEL HAS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF AN INPUT DISTURBANCE IN A STEADY-STATE TREND. OF IMPORTANCE IS THE LONG TERM EFFECT IF THE DISTURBANCE BECOMES A REGULAR INPUT. THE SPECIFIC CASE REPORTED IS AN ANALYSIS IN THE TUCSON (ARIZONA) REGION OF THE FLUCTUATIONS IN TRAVEL DEMAND IN RELATION TO POPULATION, ECONOMIC CONDITION AND FUEL AVAILABILITY INDICATORS. OF MAJOR SIGNIFICANCE IS THE MODELING TECHNIQUES' ABILITY TO DETECT DIFFERENTIAL SHIFTS TO PUBLIC TRANSIT DURING THE RECENT REDUCTION IN GASOLINE AVAILABILITY. /AUTHOR/TRRL/
