THE SAO PAULO REGIONAL MODEL FOR COMMODITY AND PASSENGER FLOWS: APPLICATION AND RESULTS

The analytical procedures have provided a method for assessing a wide range of policies at a statewide level. In detail the models have many limitations and their current application is subject to a number of simplified assumptions. It is likely that these limitations can be removed to produce a powerful tool for regional planning. It has been found that the railway system has ample capacity to handle virtually any reasonable demand and that level of traffic can be handled with levels of investment expected to be available.
