Application of Albatross for Scenario Development: Future Travel Behavior in an Ageing Population



This chapter reports the application of Albatross, an activity-based travel demand model. We describe an application of the ALBATROSS model system to better understand future travel behavior under different economic and demographic scenarios. Complex scenarios define demographic changes, changes in the transportation system, changes in the land-use system, and economic developments (prices and income).
