Integrated Transport and Land-Use-Modelling in Selected Urban Areas (2001-2002)

The objective of this study was to analyse the feasibility of applying an integrated transport and land-use modelling approach to assess the long-term impact of different transport related policies using the urban regions of Bilbao and Helsinki as examples. The task of S&W was to integrate disaggregate environmental impact models into the modelling system. The project was carried out for the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS), one of the seven scientific institutes of the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC). The project was co-ordinated by Marcial Echenique y Compañía S.A., Bilbao, Spain, the second partner was LT Consultants, Helsinki, Finland. The two project reports (Part A Methodology and Part B Policy Scenarios) are available for download at the IPTS website.
