Assessing regional impacts of transportation policies and traffic management solutions in large urban areas

Tomas Rendl, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This thesis introduces the problem of the continually increasing demand for road transportation in large urban areas. Associated problems and their possible solutions have been described and linked together in a wider context. Thereafter, a framework for the application of the multicriterial decision making method is introduced in order to help to find the best solution. The proposed framework evaluates alternatives and their potential impacts with respect to nine criteria. This method has been applied in a case study, using the example of the City of Prague, Czech Republic. Based on the results of two scenarios, the city's superior highway network completion is first recommended. Thereafter, implementation of an urban road pricing system is recommended. ^
