A critical look at the relationships between the urban transport system and vehicle emissions

Stochastic modelling of vehicle emissions investigating the effects of policy interventions, such as pollution control legislation, on air-quality is rare but valuable. Stochastic modelling is valuable to evaluate various transport options, and to identify the associated impacts on public health. The Institute of Transport and Logistics Studies (ITLS) at the University of Sydney has been developing a strategic computerised tool TRESIS (Transportation and Environment Strategy Impact Simulator) as a policy advisory computerised tool to evaluate the impact of transport and non-transport policy instruments on urban travel behaviour and the environment with a wide range of performance indicators. In the future, TRESIS will assess alternative transport polices and their impact on air quality. Research is ongoing in developing TRESIS, and to apply a more comprehensive and rigorous policy instrument for further assessing urban air-quality.
