MITSIMLab : Enhancements and Applications for Urban Networks

  title={MITSIMLab : Enhancements and Applications for Urban Networks},
  author={Moshe E. Ben-Akiva and Tomer Toledo},
Urban and freeway networks differ significantly both in the physical nature of the network and the behavior of drivers. Compared to freeway networks, urban networks are characterized by shorter links and more significant effects from intersections and their control on delays and levels of service. The presence of public transit, bicyclists, pedestrians, and on-street parking further complicate the modeling of urban networks. These differences are especially important in the context of… CONTINUE READING
