This paper describes how the initial MATSim model of Tel Aviv has been updated and extended since its first version presented by Bekhor et al. (see 1). Main innovations are the inclusion of road pricing in the scenario and the incorporation of destination choice as an endogenous choice in the model. By conducting several experiments, it is shown that this implementation is able to fully replace the ad-hoc destination choice part of the first model. Furthermore, the model has been improved by several substantial updates in terms of data, such as population, network, zonal information, traffic counts, road pricing, trip length distribution. The outcomes of the calibrated model are compared to real world data as well as to the outcomes of the original model using EMME/2 for the traffic assignment. It is shown that the MATSim model reproduces the traffic flows very accurate and even better than EMME/2 Show more
