Abstract

This study aims to (1) develop a transportation strategy model to analyze environmental impacts by transportation demand management (TDM) schemes, (2) to apply the proposed model system in Tokyo Metropolitan Area and (3) to calculate environmental impact reduction effects by land use and TDM measures. The results of scenario analysis indicate that job-house neighboring, pricing for vehicles in the core area and introduction of electric vehicles might be effective to reduce environmental impacts caused by transportation in Tokyo Metropolitan Area.
