This report describes six major transport demand modeling systems that have been developed by RAND Europe for sponsors in six different countries. The models allow a wide range of urban and regional transport policy options to be analyzed and are developed using a common approach but with considerable adaptation to local circumstances. The structure of the models and the principles on which they are based are described and compared.
