Abstract

This paper intends to show that despite limited data availability it is still possible to elaborate semi-sophisticated LUTI models which can be a stepping stone for countries that are less developed in terms of transport modelling practice but eager to improve. It provides an outline of the model and of the calibrating process which was based on data from the city of Budapest. Based on the results it is undeniable that excluding land-use effects of transport in modelling could cause a serious distortion even in a shorter time period. It seems that such land-use effects and feedbacks can no longer be disregarded as it is not in accordance with the desire of improving transport modelling practice. From this aspect, the proposed approach is practical and can overcome general obstacles of time, cost and data availability issues. The next step should be to carry out tests for the estimation of real transport investments and compare the results with other models.
