The interaction between urban land uses and the urban transportation system is one of the most critical issues in traffic policy and urban management. In order to investigate how these land uses to interact with the transportation system, the construction effects of the “Tehran Mall” trans-regional complex on the general measures of the Tehran transportation system and District 22 were studied based on the 4-step modeling approach. In order to model the travel attraction of this complex, models of mixed trans-regional land uses were calibrated using volume counting and query information. Then, two scenarios were defined for Tehran in the year 1400. The first scenario was the status of the Tehran transportation system in the absence of Tehran Mall, and the second one was its status in the presence of Tehran Mall. After modeling both scenarios in EMME software, a comparison between the two scenarios was performed based on general measures of the transportation system, which include transportation network measures, auto, and public travel demand, air pollution emissions, and fuel consumption. Comparing the results of these two scenarios showed that in the case in which the Tehran Mall was constructed, important measures of the Tehran transportation system were improved. Therefore, it can be concluded that the construction of trans-regional attractive land use in an area with unsaturated traffic capacity can attract part of the travel demand from other areas and thereby can improve the transportation system while reducing emissions.
