Variable demand modelling (VDM) is the process used to predict and quantify changes in travel demand resulting from a change in the transport system and there has been a historical tendency to consider VDM as only being applicable to the modelling and assessment of larger scale transport schemes with anticipated impacts over wide areas. As a result, VDM has traditionally been undertaken using wider-area models that typically employ deterministic equilibrium modelling techniques to produce...
