THE METHOD OF POLICY CAPTURING FOR THE TRANSPORTATION DISADVANTAGED: SIMULATION RESULTS

In an earlier experimental transportation modeling study on transport and the disadvantaged, calibrated in a small town in Turkey, it was observed that an integrated transport planning model for the disadvantaged was likely. The findings were observable at all stages of the sequential modeling; however, with slight differences compared to 'normal' model results. This paper aims to show that the method of policy capture could be possible based on these differences, and could help improve the adverse conditions of the disadvantaged. The analysis method, a category analysis based on cluster analysis results, used TRANUS software to run simulations for the 3 disadvantaged types: socioeconomic, spatial, and positional. Simulation results demonstrate that the socioeconomic dimension was the best for policy capture.
