Hi Robert,
Thank you for those references.
As a Metropolitan Transport Authority we need to create macro public transport models to simulate, analyse and plan the transport network and services provided to the city population.
PTV and other providers, offer very efficient software tools to help on those dificult and complex tasks. But they are based on closed source software licenses that we, beeing a public administration, should avoid and look for open and free equivalent solutions.After a short query I've been able to find several aplications (see below).
But I am relative new on this particulary transport area, so I don't know much about those alternatives. I really appreciate any recomendations from who already used some of these: 

- Simulation of Urban MObility

- Multi-Agent Transport Simulation (MATSIM)


- Open Source Sustainable Transport Informatics Platform (OSSTIP) 

- Transportation Analysis and Simulation System (TRANSIMS)

There are several listing on this subjetct, with many other solutions:


Thank you in advance.
Ricardo Pinho

The tools of which I'm aware are focused on transit planning (rather than more transportation in general) and include:

 * World Bank Open Transit Indicators - https://github.com/WorldBank-Transport/open-transit-indicators - this is a project Azavea is developing under contract with the World Bank - we expect the initial version to be complete by the end of December
 * Open Trip Planner Analyst - a project that began at OpenPlans and is now led by Conveyal - http://www.opentripplanner.org/analyst/
