Abstract

A new method for estimating origin-destination (OD) tables is presented that uses road counts and route-choice information. The innovative feature of the
estimation method, a refined version of the information-minimizing approach, is the use of empirical route-choice information. The method has been applied in an evaluation study of a cycleway network in a medium-sized city in the western part of The Netherlands. In this study, OD matrices were estimated to determine changes in travel patterns of bicycle users caused by the implementation of a new bicycle network scheme. The method that proved to be useful can be applied equally well to automobile traffic by using route information derived from, for example, license-plate surveys.
