summary Since the late 1950s, transportation models have played an important role in forecasting travel demand and evaluating the impacts of plans and policies. Planners use transportation models to learn about the behavior of transport systems. Over the past decades, the development of particular modeling approaches has closely followed planning needs, which in turn are closely related to dominant policy issues. The first generation of transportation models was developed during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Their purpose was to facilitate the prediction of future travel demand, such that road capacity programs could be based on predicted demand. The first generation models are commonly referred to as four-step models. These models are typically formulated and calibrated at the level of the traffic zones. Individuals are aggregated by traffic zone. Traffic is considered to be the result of four sequential decisions: trip generation, trip distribution, modal split and traffic assignment. These decisions are modeled separately at successive stages. Although the four-step models have been widely used, even institutionalized in literally thousands of applications (Stopher, et al., 1996), the major shortcoming of these large-scale, aggregate and supply-oriented models is their lack of behavioral content.
