This Transport Modelling Review Report examines the transport modelling practices in Perth, Western Australia and benchmarks them against best practice in Australia and overseas. It offers a framework for the evaluation of modelling approaches, a comparison of the two current transport models STEM and ROM24 and other practical approaches around the world, analyses three possible options for model development in WA, and suggests a pathway for a new best practice approach.
