This paper presents an enriched, agent-based small scale scenario with dynamic demand and an integrated public transport system based on the commonly used Sioux Falls road network. The scenario aims to provide a realistic, fully dynamic demand with heterogeneous socio- demographic users and a high degree of spatial resolution. Real world survey and land-use data is used to generate a diverse synthetic population and accurate activity locations. The socio-demographic characteristics include age and sex on individual and income on household levels. The assignment of home and work locations employs land-use and building information, census data from the City of Sioux Falls, South Dakota as well as commonly used static OD-matrices from LeBlanc et al., 1975. This enriched Sioux Falls scenario can serve as a convenient test-case for the study of different transportation policies as well as a test bed for the extension and development of agent-based simulation frameworks. It is important to note that the scenario does not aim to replicate the real City of Sioux Falls, SD, and remains a fictitious test-case scenario. In this work, we use Multi-agent Transport Simulation (MATSim) in order to evaluate the stochastic user-equilibrium of the compiled supply and demand. The scenario data, as well as simulations input and output, can be obtained by following the instructions at www.matsim.org/scenario/sioux-falls Show more
