This paper aims to validate a simulation system for exploring the land-use impacts on travel behaviour. The system simulates urban layout and travel behaviour. The key parameters and input for simulating urban layout are calibrated by Eindhoven, and a set of hypothetic cities are then generated to validate the travel behaviour, with the measurement of entropy employed measuring the land use pattern. The results show that the simulation system can generate a variety of land use patterns, and the different travel behaviour of the land use patterns are captured. The results also show that when the land use patterns are similar to a real city pattern, their travel behaviour is similar as well. The system is proved to be a helpful simulation tool to explore the impacts of land use on travel behaviour.
