Abstract

The objective of the study reported in this paper was to develop an activity-based modeling system in the context of developing countries, providing accurate estimates, which are expected to serve as better inputs for evaluation of different transportation policy scenarios. The case study is Phitsanulok city, as one of major city of Thailand. The modeling system primarily adopts a tour-based structure in which the tour is used as the unit of modeling travel instead of the trip, preserving a consistency in destination, mode, and time of day choices across trips.
