A NETWORK APPROACH TO COMMUTING

This paper focuses primarily on theoretical and modeling aspects of how both transportation networks and characteristics of the spatial structure influence the commuting flows between specific zones within a region. A model is presented for commuting in a network of towns. A basic assumption is that all individuals have a given residential location and that every node in the network has a fixed number of jobs. The authors then propose a general model for the commuting of labor between the nodes in the network. One potential area of application for the model is investigating how commuting flows are affected by investments in transportation infrastructure.
