This paper presents an integrated land use and transport model. The fundamental idea behind the paper is that land uses determine the traffic generation and hence the transport demand in a city, and the transport, in turn, influences the further location of land uses. The paper first gives a conceptual framework which argues the need for a systems view of the city in which all the components interact. This is followed by the mathematical formulation of a system model, and finally the calibration principles of the model are presented. This model has been implemented for Sao Paulo metropolitan area and has been used since 1975 to study transport and land use policies for this city.(a) /TRRL/
