The evaluation of transportation proposals

  • R. J. Salter


The object of the simulation of the land-use/transportation process is to estimate the trips that will be attracted to a proposed future transportation system for a given pattern of land-use development. To compare effectively different transportation proposals it is imperative that each proposal should be evaluated.
