MICHIGAN STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION MODELING SYSTEM. VOLUME XIII. MICHIGAN GOES MULTI-MODAL. STATEWIDE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

This report details the preparation of an automated battery of computer programs which will become the basis for the evaluation of passenger travel and commodity flow by four modes - highway, bus, rail and air - at the statewide or regional level. Recent Federal legislation, the energy crisis, and financial difficulties besetting carriers in all modes make it imperative that departments of transportation by equipped to do multi-modal statewide transportation planning. A modeling system such as the one described herein seems to be an important step in achieving this capability. The basic programs in Michigan's package of routines were originally developed by Stanford Research Institute. /Author/
