AbstractAbstract Mobility and commuting in metropolitan areas are very expensive, highly polluted and time wasting. The Four Step Model (FSM) is the key model to analyze a Transportation Network. However, being the \{FSM\} a combination of several models, combining them in one model have rarely been applied. To deal with this problem an Agent-Based Model (ABM) is proposed. An \{ABM\} uses the metaphor of autonomous agents and so, they can be a handful tool for combining different models in one. Therefore, this model can be used as a tool for simulation and integrate the \{FSM\} in one model. Here we present the preliminary results of this approach.
