Situation. Part III and Chap.  8 are targeted to the theoretical modeling of transit systems. The challenge is to match the model’s scope and contents to the real-world features that are relevant to the simulation purposes. As the theoretical development of models is oriented toward the development of scientific knowledge, it takes place mostly in the research arena—research teams, academic network, and scientific reviews.
