Hundred nodes in the Stockholm region – a simple calculation Höjer, Mattias

By: Höjer, MattiasPublication details: Transport systems: Organization and planning, 2000; 3rd KFB research conference, June 13-14, 2000.

In this paper a calculation of potential effects on commuting of a spatially restructured Stockholm region is presented. The result of the calculation is presented for the year 2010 as a comparison between the node-structured city and a scenario that has been used by the planning authorities in the region. The calculation is based on a number of assumptions. First, a number of nodes were selected. The exact number of nodes was not defined in advance, but with requirements on reasonable public transport and with a look at population density in different areas of the region, approximately 100 nodes were chosen. These were then treated as "attractors" of work places in the following calculation. Commute trips in the reference scenario could then be re-routed according to some assumptions. One assumption was that the desire to cut a trip would increase with distance. Another was that the desire to start working in the area of a node would increase with reducing distance to the node.
