Equity Analysis of Land Use and Transport Plans Using an Integrated Spatial Model

This report describes a study to investigate how the Sacramento PECAS model was applied to evaluate the equity effects of land use and transport policies intended to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The Activity Allocation (AA) Module of the PECAS (Production, Exchange, andConsumption Allocation) Model for the Sacramento region is used to simulate two future scenarios arising from a recent regional visioning planning process, which was conducted to cope with an estimated doubling of the regional population by the year 2050. The ‘Preferred Blueprint’ plan articulates levels and locations of redevelopment and new transit-oriented development linked to a list of preferred transport projects. The ‘Business-As-Usual’ plan continues previous land use and transport trends, and leads to a larger area of urban coverage and lower development densities.
