Abstract: As a case study area, Seoul metropolitan area in Korea, where has been experiencing transportation problems including congestions and emissions, currently needs an alternative policy measure at the individual level, instead of large scale infrastructure constructions. Even though some researches based on an activity-based approach dealing with an individual travel behavior have been conducted in Korea, none of them used a simulation framework. Considering a genuine activity-based transportation demand forecast, there is no better option but to introduce the activity-based simulation framework. Among several activity-based transportation frameworks, Feathers will indeed be applied into the study area because it is the most viable and suitable simulation platform for that area in terms of a similar spatial dimension. Although, the application for the study area is possible on Feathers, there are potential problems including the prohibition of using individual and household data in census, an inconsistent administrative unit in Korea and inappropriate Flemish figures and patterns for the study area. To overcome these problems, IPF for synthesizing population and a comparative study of Flemish and the study area will be applied in this study. Moreover, we plan to integrate an agent-based mode with the TDM research in order to complement the activity-based model by predicting an adapted daily schedule to an individual circumstance.
