Samenvatting Traditional transport models of the last 50 years have focused on car traffic, and to some extent, on public transport. Transport planners, trained as they are as engineers have not considered real human behaviour. To be able to develop urban structures in transport systems for sustainable cities it is necessary to develop new kind of models. These models have to be based on real human behavior and not on assumptions. They have to represent first of all the base of all people and goods movements: pedestrians and their needs. Accessibility for people: pedestrian have the first priority in urban and transport planning. The second step of the models has to represent cyclist behavior. Their needs have the second highest priority and have to be integrated into the basic network of pedestrians. The third step of the model is modelling public transport taking into account the whole transport chain from origin to destination including accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists.
