THE IMPACTS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION AND LAND USE POLICIES ON TRANSPORTATION ENERGY CONSUMPTION. VOLUME 1
This report explores relationships between energy consumption in urban passenger travel, land use, transportation system characteristics, and travel behavior. Findings are based on 112 experiments conducted with an integrated, equilibrium transportation-land use simulation model. This model simulates urban growth, is sensitive to a broad range of transportation and land use actions, accounts for congestion, accommodates auto and transit modes, and responds to the generalized costs of travel. Three city shapes, concentric ring, one-sided, and polynucleated, were tested.
