ESTIMATING TRAVEL TIME ON ALL ROUTES IN A METROPOLITAN COUNTY

THE PROBLEMS OF ESTIMATING FUTURE TRAFFIC DEMANDS EXPRESSED IN VEHICLE MILES OF TRAVEL, ESTIMATING ZONE TO ZONE MOVEMENTS ASSIGNED TO THE NETWORK ARE SOLVED BY A NEW THEORY OF TRIP DISTRIBUTION. THE CATS ANALYSIS OF URBAN TRIP DISTRIBUTION SHOWS THAT THE FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION IS MATHEMATICALLY CONSIDERED EXPONENTIAL. THE MATHEMATICAL MODEL OF THIS TRIP DISTRIBUTION WAS DEVELOPED BY MR. MORTON SCHNEIDER. THE TEST OUTLINED IN THIS PAPER IS A PILOT STUDY AND IS A PART OF THE LAKE COUNTY AREA TRANSPORTATION STUDY. THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE RESULTS OF THIS LARGE SCALE STUDY CONTRIBUTES TO A BETTER NETWORK DESCRIPTION, AND IS CONSIDERED A BASIS FOR A MORE RELIABLE TRAFFIC ASSIGNMENT AND FOR BETTER FUTURE TRAFFIC ESTIMATES.
