PRELIMINARY RESULTS FROM AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORTATION AND AND LAND USE MODELS PACKAGE

This paper describes the results, to date, of an effort to integrate a land use model with a transportation network model for the purpose of analyzing the inter-relationships of transportation facility development and land development. In the system which has been developed each model provides input to, and receives feedbacks from, each other model. To the author's knowledge, the effort described here represents the first successful attempt to develop and test an integrated model package involving these reciprocal relationships. The results obtained from preliminary runs of this package should be of considerable interest to both transportation planners and land use planners. With this integrated system it has been possible to observe the interrelationships, and in particular the feedbacks, between land use and levels of traffic on the networks. Preliminary results indicate that congested networks produce tendencies toward metropolitan centralization. Attempts to relieve congestion seem to produce metropolitan decentralization and increased travel which lead, in turn, to metropolitan sprawl and increased spread of congestion. /Author/TRRL/
