A Graphical route information panel (GRIP) benefits transportation induction and alleviating metropolitan congestion. However, facing GRIP, different people give different feedback. The route choice behavior under GRIP derives from many factors. Considering little work paid on the motorists' route choice behavior under GRIP, in this paper, a traffic model driven route choice simulator is designed in UML. The GRIP module in the simulator is interpreted in detail. A prototype simulator system is also developed in this research.
