This training set addresses a clear definition of transport modelling and its objective. For decades, transport modelling has been a practical tool to support policymakers with data-based analysis for urban mobility planning and other appropriate strategies for present and future mobility needs and behaviours. This training set is designed to help the audience increase their understanding of urban mobility modelling, the most common transport models and the data needed to implement them are presented concisely. However, in practice, data availability is often limited. Therefore, this training set proposes potential solutions to gather mobility data even in poor and scarce data contexts.

Training Objectives

  • Gain a better understanding of urban mobility modelling: objectives, nature, methods, and limitations
  • Identify the best-adapted modelling approach for a specific context, especially when data is scarce
  • Learn practice interpretation of modelling results

Indicative agenda

  1. What is transport modelling and what are its main uses?
  2. Overview of different transport planning models
  3. Usual methodology of transport modelling
  4. How to conduct transport modelling with limited data
