URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING SYSTEM (UTPS), THE COMMUNITY AGGREGATE PLANNING MODEL (CAPM) USERS' GUIDE. HIGHWAY SKETCH PLANNING

The report is an introduction to the Community Aggregate Planning Model (CAPM), and its potential uses. CAPM has recently been incorporated as a module of the Urban Transportation Planning System (UTPS) package of computer programs, and is a computerized transportation sketch planning model, which permits fast and inexpensive preliminary screening of highway improvement alternatives. It is useful in a number of sketch planning applications, such as the analysis of urban development patterns, alternative system investments, air quality, and energy consumption. The report incorporates two documents--the CAPM Users' Guide and the CAPM Program Writeup. The Writeup is included in this report as an Appendix. Together, these documents provide information of the program's capabilities, limitations, data needs, potential applications, and computer requirements. Both are now available on the UTPS tape.
