Abstract:
While current transportation simulations evaluate vehicle trips or neighborhood walkability, none can be utilized to evaluate trips that require multi-modal transportation when walking is always one mode. In this paper, we address this gap by introducing the Multi-Modal Transportation (MMT) with Multi-Criteria Walking (MMT-MCW) concept. MMT-MCW simulation can be used to evaluate various aspects of smart cities, such as walkability. The premise of MMT-MCW is based on the observations that: (a) walking can be performed for other purposes besides merely reaching destinations, such as to maintain or improve health and (b) traveler’s characteristics and preferences play an important role in determining optimal route choices. Selected MMT-MCW scenarios were used to evaluate walkability of several cities with respect to three criteria: inter-modal transfer locations (parking lots and bus stops), elevation of walking routes; and walking distance. Results of simulations using these criteria are discussed and analyzed.
