Large cities are amongst the most complex production systems ever built. Land Use Transportation Interaction (LUTI) models are often used to support the equally complex urban planning processes that shape our cities. The CSIR has developed a LUTI model, based on adapted versions of Urban Sim and OpenTripPlanner, which has been used to simulate spatial growth patterns in South Africa to better understand the future demand for infrastructure and services. The model has proven that there is a clear and demonstrated link between public transport and increased accessibility to jobs.
