Today, city smartization and access to published information,  influence the daily decisions of the citizens and changes their travel behavior. Although this information is an important step towards smart city and can be of great help to people, it can have side effects. In critical network situations, when a route is disrupted by an accident or route repair, spatial information providers offer options that are completely passenger-oriented and don't care about criteria such as spatial features, landuses, and residents's status. In the present paper, first the effect of access to spatial information on passenger behavior is investigated and it is shown that providing passenger-oriented spatial information to passengers may reduce the utility of the other travelers and residents; Therefore, a solution has been proposed that, on the one hand, maximizes the utility of passengers, on the other hand, maintains the utility of other people involved in this issue. For this purpose, in designing  spatial information provided to travelers, the criteria of landuses have been taken into consideration. The agent-based model has been used to evaluate the proposed solution and three scenarios of "no information", "advanced information" and "advanced information considering specific landuses" have been used to evaluate passenger behavior. The data used to evaluate the proposed idea relates to the port of Elizabeth in Nelson Mandela Bay. The results show that having access to information can lead to a reduction in total travel time, a reduction in potential passenger delays, and an increase in passenger satisfaction in a network disruption. It has been shown that using special landuses in spatial data designing not only maintains the aforementioned benefits for travelers, but also provides comprehensive benefits for all those involved.
Keywords: information availability, disruption management, design information, travel behavior, agent-based simulation.
