Network Structure and Travel Behavior: GTI/UTC Lunchtime Lecture Series

From February: GTI/UTC Lunchtime Lecture Series - Dr. David Levinson - YouTube: "Network Structure and Travel Behavior"

(57:22)
Abstract: Transportation networks have an underlying structure, defined by the layout, arrangement and the connectivity of the individual network elements, namely the road segments and their intersections. The differences in network structure exist among and between networks. This presentation argues that travellers perceive and respond to these differences in underlying network structure and complexity, resulting in differences in observed travel patterns. This hypothesized relationship between network structure and travel is analyzed using individual and aggregate level travel and network data from metropolitan regions across the U.S. Various measures of network structure, compiled from existing sources, are used to quantify the structure of street networks. The relation between these quantitative measures and travel is then identified using econometric models.
