The Sydney Strategic Travel Model (STM) informs long-term transport planning, policy development and infrastructure assessment across the Greater Sydney area. Additional model estimation work has further improved the commute mode-destination model.
The UK Migration Advisory Committee asked RAND Europe to examine how migration is likely to impact transport networks and congestion. The resulting research is one of the first studies using UK data to provide an empirical evidence base about migrants' travel behavior and impacts.
