Methodology for an integrated modelling of macro and microscopic processes in urban transport demand

Martínez, Francisco and Cortés, Cristián and Justen, Andreas (2009) Methodology for an integrated modelling of macro and microscopic processes in urban transport demand. International Conference on Travel Behaviour Research, 2009-12-13 - 2009-12-18, Jaipur, Indien.



The paper presents the theoretical formulation and the underlying assumptions for an activity-based approach of transport demand modelling. Starting with the definition of a time hierarchy of decision-making in the urban environment, rules are formulated that dictate the general hierarchic structure of individuals’ choices in the urban system. The temporal scale defines decisions for activities and their daily sequence, the geographical scale decisions associated to destination choice processes. We build activity plans (number and daily sequence of activities) from an empirical data set and calculate trip paths (time-spatial trajectories including transport modes and travel destinations) assuming consumers to maximize their utility in the decision-making process. First results of the translation of the theoretical model into a real-world application are shown for the city of Santiago, Chile.
