Transportation systems are planned and designed to provide people with the ability to engage in activities at locations and times of their preference. When people cannot engage in activities at locations and times of their preference, the transportation system is deemed to provide a poor level of service. Transportation models are aimed at modeling and forecasting where and when the demand for travel will occur so that the transportation system can be planned and designed to meet the projected travel demand and ensure a high quality of life for the residents and visitors of a geographical region. Thus the analysis of travel behavior is inextricably linked to the concepts of space and time, and there is a growing body of literature that makes a strong case for the development of transportation models and planning methods that explicitly recognize the role of space and time dimensions in people’s travel behavior.
