APPLICATIONS OF LAND USE MODELS TO STRATEGIC TRANSPORT PLANNING

The nature of strategic land use and transportation planning in Ontario is discussed and the major phases of the typical study are outlined. The structure of a land use and transportation model that may be used in these strategic studies is described as well as two applications of the model. The first set of applications are described for a variety of regional planning problems in the Toronto-centered region of Ontario. These applications include the analysis of the probable impacts of various public sector investments on activity distributions and the analysis of the role of a new town. The second application is described for the Delhi region of India. A version of the model that is disaggregated by socioeconomic group is also outlined. /Author/
