The EXPEDITE project was carried out for the European Commission, Directorate-General for Energy and Transport (DGTREN) by a consortium of consultants and institutes, coordinated by RAND Europe, as part of the 5 th Framework. The objectives of EXPEDITE were to generate forecasts for both passenger and freight transport for Europe for 2005, 2010, 2015 and 2020, to show which policies can be effective to reach substitution from car and lorry and air transport to other modes and to identify market segments that are sensitive (and those that are insensitive) to policy measures. In previous deliverables in this project, we have reviewed existing national and international transport models, presented the base-year (1995) data, defined a Reference Scenario for 2020 and the intermediate years, defined policies to be simulated, and carried out runs with existing models (the SCENES European model and a number of national models for passenger and freight transport). On the basis of this information we created two new models, the EXPEDITE meta-model for passenger transport and the EXPEDITE meta-model for freight transport. In this EXPEDITE Final Report, we present the main outcomes of the entire project. In particular we give the results of runs with the meta-models and the SCENES models for the Reference Scenario. Furthermore, we report on the policy runs carried out with those models and the evaluation of these policies in EXPEDITE. On the basis of these policy runs we have also reached conclusions on the effectiveness of policy measures and on (in)sensitive market segments Show more
