Abstract

Reliability reflects the level of ease of people and goods to travel. Reliability relates with the variability of travel time, speed, and system usage and transportation system capacity. The higher the capacity of the system and the faster the travel time, the higher the level of reliability of the transportation system, so that it can reduce traffic congestion. Traffic congestion will occur when travel requests exceed road capacity. Our research attempts to provides a comprehensive and objective assessment of improving reliability of transportation systems and its impact to reduce traffic congestion. We utilized system dynamics simulation model to test and evaluate the alternatives of future strategies to increase the reliability of transportation systems and its impact to reduce traffic congestion. Systems dynamics models can be developed at the macroscopic and microscopic levels of transportation systems as well as to evaluate the …
