Method to Decompose Regional Travel Demand Model - Case Study of Kraków Region

In this paper we propose a new approach to model regional travel demand with a four-step model. Based on a comprehensive travel survey results for the Małopolska region in Poland (over 3mln inhabitants) we analysed the demand model with specific focus on regional trips. As a result, we introduce a modified model structure where long-distance trips are exposed. We breakdown the demand to four demand strata of various destination types to improve regional demand model quality. Such decomposition allows better representation of regional travel demand as compared to the classical four-step approach.
