APPLICATION OF MANUAL TECHNIQUES FOR TRAVEL-DEMAND ESTIMATION

Manual techniques can be valuable in many aspects of transportation planning, especially for small and medium-sized cities. To effectively use these techniques, the planner must be aware of the procedures, assumptions, and, consequently, the utility of the outcome. The use of sensitivity surfaces often facilitates the planning product. This paper describes the use of manual techniques for travel-demand estimation through two scenarios, a site analysis in Boise, Idaho, and a corridor analysis in Columbus, Ohio. The quick-response advantage of manual techniques is emphasized. (Author)
