Improving Analysis Tools for Passenger Travel

This article describes a Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) project, Partnership to Develop an Integrated, Advanced Travel Demand Model and a Fine-Grained, Time –Sensitive Network. This project has integrated a disaggregate activity-based model with a traffic simulation model to create a new, completely disaggregate model. Both component models are implemented with open-source software. The integrated model simulates the complete set of activity and travel choices for each individual in an urban area, including activity type, location, travel mode, time of day, and highway and transit route choices. The model’s simulation of transit vehicles and of individual person tours via transit is a unique feature. The new integrated model has been implemented for the Sacramento, California, region.
