Transport modelling is a fascinating subject, but is often a black
art to those who use its results in practice. It is generally
regarded as a specialist subject for a few dedicated specialists,
and yet more and more planners require transport modelling results
in their evidence base for decision-making, whilst also substantial
financial investments rely on model outcomes. A better
understanding of what transport models are, what they can and
cannot do, good practice, and guidance on what matters most in
their application, can help these practitioners in their
communication with modellers, and ultimately deliver greater value.
How do I design a model that suits the questions that need
answering and the data I have available? Which questions do I need
to ask the modeller to ensure that the model meets my purpose? What
assumptions are being made, implicitly or explicitly, and do they
matter? How do I check the data inputs in a sensible manner? How do
I maintain a model over time? This book is for undergraduate and
graduate students, early career professionals and those who need to
engage with transport modellers. It is a practical book, although
well grounded in the theory. The coverage is accessible and also
well referenced to good quality material in other applications.
