PLANNING MODEL FOR TRANSPORTATION CORRIDORS

The paper describes a planning model for transportation corridors and outlines its application to one such study. The components of the model--demand, level-of-service equilibration, and computation of travel impacts--all have new features that make the model system easy and inexpensive to operate. Demand is predicted on the basis of a representative sample of households from the study area by using a disaggregate logit model; level of service is expressed by means of equations, which avoids the pitfalls and costs of lengthy network coding procedures; equilibration is accomplished by solving, in essence, the demand and level-of-service equations. Finally, the consequences of policies can be computed by any user-defined market segment. This is made possible by use of a representative household sample and the disaggregate demand and level-of-service models. /Author/
