Making the Most of Models: Using Models To Develop More Effective Transport Policies And Strategies

This paper reviews the role of conventional transportation models in the development of transportation policies and strategies. This is followed by an exploration of the additional contribution that simplified models could make, if these were made more widely available. An example of a simplified model, developed in New Zealand, is described to illustrate the use of this type of modelling for policy and strategy development purposes. The paper concludes that conventional transportation models and simplified models could play greater roles in supporting the development of transportation policies and strategies.
