MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION MODELING SYSTEM. VOLUME XIII-D. IMPACT OF POPULATION AND ENERGY ON TRANSPORTATION NEEDS. A MULTIMODAL APPROACH. STATEWIDE PROCEDURES SECTION

Until recently, alternative modes of transportation have had seemingly little impact upon highway travel. Many people now feel this will soon change. The present emphasis upon energy conservation, together with increased energy and transportation costs may affect travel in many significant ways. The problem of defining future transportation needs and identifying possible deficiencies is further complicated by considering the interaction between energy costs, population shifts and growth, and the availability and efficiency of alternative modes. Until recently, it has been practically impossible to effectively address all of these issues and their interaction. Now, by combining information and tools from three existing major impact analysis sources described in this volume, a process has been developed which can measure the impacts various multi-modal proposals have on highway deficiencies. /Author/
