Topic Area D: Activity and Transport Demand

 

This Topic Area deals with understanding and modelling how people make choices regarding their activities and travel plans, and how these interact with the transport system. It deals with theoretical constructs, behavioural assumptions, and methodologies for the analysis, representation, inference and modelling of the way travellers behave and the interrelationships of this behaviour with their activities and the transport system. This subject area includes all topics related to the analysis of travel demand and behaviour and their interactions with time use, and the environment.
