Keywords: urban transportation, urban modelling, trip distribution


The nowadays applied different macro models or parts ofthose, which describe the urban environment, can originate in afour-step modelling process. The paper focuses on the trip distributionprocess (the 2'd step) because of its significant calibrationrequirements. Therefore, it is possible to make the entiremodelling process more reliable (dependent upon the reliabilityof the available databases ).
