Traffic Modeling and Simulation (TRANSIMS)

Traffic Modeling and Simulation (TRANSIMS), traffic simulation software, is a large area multimodal dynamic traffic assignment code, emphasizing high fidelity traffic analysis. This software allows for detailed second by second modeling of all travelers, individual cars, trucks, buses and other transit vehicles in a region. The simulation analyzes traffic over a metropolitan region, including the analysis of all local streets and network details such as ramps, signaled intersections, and other fine-grained features. It has been designed to enhance the ability of planning analysts to mitigate congestion, to develop evacuation plans, and to analyze air quality issues.
