Abstract: In this paper, meta-synthesis system approach is applied to a consulting project on exploring constructing integrated transportation system in China. A series of group argumentations had been held to discuss what the concerned topics were. Group argumentation environment (GAE) is applied to help such group divergent thinking process for developing qualitative hypotheses for further analytical work. With some assumptions, a multi-agent system model is then developed for passenger traffic simulation to show the different response in transportation system based on different conditions such as passenger behaviors, system capacity, travel distance and traffic price. Instead of solving traditional transportation problems, such kind of work aims to provide a different perspective toward transportation planning research in China.
