Strategic European Multi-Modal Modelling

Objective

1. To identify and quantify the factors affecting modal split and route choice for passengers and freight, particularly where intermodal chains are available.
2. To develop methodology for modelling intermodal chains for passenger and freight transport.
3. To apply the developed methodologies to models representing mode and route choice for European networks and particular case studies.
4. To examine barriers to intermodality arising from institutional and regulatory measures.
5. To utilise these models to examine and test policy instruments for increasing the use of intermodal methods of transport.
6. To prepare contributions to seminars at which results obtained from investigations of different types of policy instrument will be considered.

The model is to be developed will aim to explain and stimulate route and mode splits, but also the traffic generation effects of improvements to the network.
In addition, work will be done on modelling quantitive aspects reflecting the behaviour of all actors involved in intermodal transport.

Links with other projects, tasks, areas, programmes, policy actions:

Evaluation of pricing policy objectives - Task 15.
Valuation of transport service qualities - Task 14.
