oa CSIR Science Scope - Integrated land-use and transportation modelling in developing countries : built environment

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 model has proven that there is a clear and demonstrated link between public transport and increased accessibility to jobs.
