Abstract This study demonstrates possibility of simulation software application to modeling level of CO 2 emission as a result of different land use development scenarios as well as different level of private and public transport investments in the city. Application of simulation software Visum and four stage approach for transportation model of Krakow agglomeration gives detailed information about influence of different policy directions onto CO 2 emission in the city. This paper is focused rather on estimation of the vehicle kilometer travelled (VKT) then on modeling emission procedure and shows effects of different assumptions in planned transportation policy on emission level.
