TOOLS FOR URBAN LAND USE - TRANSPORT STRATEGY PLANNING

Urban strategy planning studies are directed towards the estimation of the transport demand and other servicing implications of a range of urban development alternatives. A land use-transport model is described which may be used to estimate the implications of alternative public development policies. These policies may include servicing and transportation options, basic and service employment location alternatives, and zoning. The model calculates an internally consistent co-distribution of population and employment along with the associated travel demends for set of public policies. A corridor-level traffic assignment technique is described which may be used along with the land use-transport model to develop corridor travel demand estimates for each development concept. Computer-based procedures for estimating the servicing requirements of alternative development concepts are also described. These procedures directly employ the land use allocations calculated by the land use model. The use of the analytical tools is illustrated with information from the Hamilton area.
