Evaluation of the Impacts of Enhancing Public Transportation Systems by Integrating Shared Mobility for First- and Last-Mile Transit Access

During the 2017-18 academic year, this work intends to fill a gap in the evaluation of the impacts of enhancing public transportation systems by integrating shared mobility for first- and last-mile transit access. The empirical and simulation work provides support for a number of ongoing projects at ITS. Specifically, during the year, the work plan includes: 1. Developing proficiency in the use of a travel demand simulation tool (Multi-Agent Transport Simulation – MATSim). MATSim is a Java-based open-source framework to model traffic at the microscopic level using multi-agent based simulation. The scope of this task is to develop expertise in MATSim, starting from simulating small-scale to large-scale scenarios. 2. Literature review of simulations and scenarios developed using MATSim. MATSim can simulate a wide range of scenarios, from modeling electric vehicles, public transportation, freight traffic, road pricing, and car sharing, among others. The scope of this task is to document the development of the various extensions and applications of MATSim to simulate the real world. Moreover, this task will also conduct a literature review of the first-and-last-mile transit access programs and evaluation tools. 3. Integrating MATSim with Metropolitan Transportation Commission Activity Based Model (MTC-ABM) Outputs. The project aims to understand the travel patterns in the Bay Area and to simulate first-mile and last-mile access to public transportation. This task will simulate a number of scenarios in MATSim based on the results from the MTC-ABM. Specifically, to simulate in MATSim the day-activity patterns generated in MTCABM for those individuals using the integrated system.
