The California Transit Energy Demand Model is a computer program for forecasting transit activity and energy consumption by urban bus and rail transit systems, intercity bus and rail, school buses, and other buses operating in California. The California Transit Model is driven by projections of population, employment, income, auto fuel economy, and auto fuel costs. It is also sensitive to changes in transit fares, service policies, and other changes in the cost of automobile travel. The structure of the model, forecasting equations, and the data used to establish parameters for these equations are described. This report also presents base-case projections of transit activity and energy consumption through 2004, as well as the data and forecasting assumptions upon which projections are based.
