California PECAS Model Development

A Statewide Integrated Land Use and Transportation Model for California, which is a “prototype operating” version of a Production, Exchange, Consumption, Allocation System (PECAS). The statewide model integrates transportation, economic, demographic, and land use information to predict the exchange of goods and services across space and time. The development of a Statewide Integrated Land Use and Transportation Model for California. This model will help to understand if integrated models might improve the ability of Caltrans HQ and district staff to better address their goals for congestion reduction, environmental justice and the promotion of livable communities. In addition, the set-up model will assist in understanding how other State agencies might pursue their mandates such as affordable housing and environmental quality, by using an integrated model. This is a functional version of a set-up prototype version of a Production, Exchange, and Consumption Allocation System (PECAS) model depicting future land use scenarios based on simulated micro-economic factors. It will have customization features to include appropriate representation of transportation demand-supply interaction, and congested conditions on relevant transportation modes at relevant locations.
