Abstract

This article presents a simulation model that depicts transport user choice in urban areas among different types of private cars and public transport. The model is used to examine the effects of different policies to aid reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Simulation results reveal that policies directed towards the adoption of new private car technologies and towards public transport cannot be analysed separately. Policies must be designed in unison in a way that they work well together and do not undermine each other's effects. For example, policies targeting electric car adoption may reduce public transport ridership and not advance the overall vision of emission free transport.
