Abstract
One of the ways to define mobility in a transportation system is total travel time for all travelers using the transportation network. A good assessment of the mobility is essential for knowing the points of congestion in the network and the factors responsible for the congestion. Also the change in mobility from the baseline to the horizon year would give the modeler an idea of the effectiveness of the various transportation systems. One of the applications of the mobility measurement is the evaluation of aviation technologies proposed by FAA to ease the congestion. This paper addresses a method to estimate the mobility of the air transportation network in the baseline year (2000). Also presented is a method to estimate the mobility to the horizon year by considering congestion on the roadway.
