Network Structure and Metropolitan Mobility
AbstractThis research develops quantitative measures that capture various aspects of underlying network structure, using aggregate level travel data from fifty metropolitan areas across the U.S. The influence of these measures on system performance is then tested using statistical regression models. The results corroborate that the quantitative measures of network structure affect the system performance. The results from this analysis can be used to develop network design guidelines that can be used to address current transportation problems.
