The use of MEPLAN by the Metropolitan Transport Planning Branch of the Cape Town City Council since 1984 was not successful due to apartheid anomalies. EMME/2 was then introduced in 1991 in replacement of MEPLAN. In this thesis we first introduce some aspects of transport modelling. Secondly we summarize the above-mentioned models before we undertake their comparative study in a post-apartheid situation. A mathematical proof of why MEPLAN was discarded is provided. The strengths and weaknesses of both MEPLAN and EMME/2 are recorded.
