The research has identified that traditional transport demand models do not answer all the questions required of today’s decision makers, and accessibility assessment (and specifically accessibility modelling and analysis) provides a new perspective for old problems.
In transport planning, accessibility models are therefore bridging the gap between the sophisticated demand models in current use by transport planners and the crude accessibility models used by market analysts. Accessibility modelling and traditional demand models therefore are complementary because accessibility modelling is best used as a precursor to, or in development with, traditional modelling given a number of the initial inputs are the same.
