Traffic network allocation; Logit model; MSA algorithm.


Traffic assignment is a crucial phase in transportation planning, involving the distribution of trip data between origin and destination points obtained from surveys across the existing or planned road network. This process helps estimate the traffic volume on each road segment. In this study, we propose a traffic assignment model utilizing the Logit methodology. As a comprehensive path-based assignment model, the Logit approach determines the probability of users selecting each route. Subsequently, the overall traffic demand and route selection probabilities are employed to calculate the traffic volume on each route.
