AN ACTIVITY-BASED MODELING FRAMEWORK FOR TRANSPORTATION POLICY EVALUATION

Assessment of the impacts of transportation policies on complex travel behavior necessarily involves consideration of constraints, absent in conventional techniques, yet fundamental to the activity approach. Policies may be generally viewed as those which either relax or tighten constraints, or alternatively, those which expand or reduce the choice set of individual decision-makers. Whereas existing research has focused on the analysis of relevant constraints in activity/travel behavior, few extensions have been made to examine choice as central policy for assessment, due to both the strength of accepted relationships between constraints and feasible activity patterns, and limited results relative to choice formation.
