The Northeast Megaregion Travel Demand and Investment Model: Final Report and User’s Manual

The Northeast Megaregion Travel Demand and Investment (NEMR TD&I) Model is a standard 4-step travel demand model that brings together population and job forecasts for 2030 and 2040 with detailed highway and public transportation network data across the 13-state Northeast Megaregion to help transportation planners evaluate the demand for new transportation facilities and services. Implemented using TransCAD, a PC-based transportation planning package that combines a map-based interface with cutting-edge travel demand forecasting procedures, the NEMR TD&I Model functions at two spatial scales: (i) the megaregional scale, spanning counties along the I-95 corridor from Maine to Virginia; and (ii) the multi-metropolitan area scale, based on zip code districts for the combined Boston-Providence-Worcester region, the Greater New York City region, the Greater Philadelphia region, and the Baltimore-Washington-Richmond metro area clusters.
