Transportation Demand Models

  • Ennio Cascetta
Part of the Applied Optimization book series (APOP, volume 49)


Recall from Chapter 1 that transportation demand derives from the need to carry out activities in different locations. Thus, its level and characteristics are influenced by the activity system and the transportation supply in the area.
