EMERGING TRANSPORTATION PLANNING METHODS

The U.S. Department of Transportation has sponsored research on new transportation planning techniques for several years. A number of significant advances have been made both in manual and computer procedures. Many of the new techniques were developed at universities and have distinct advantages over traditional methods. In 1976 the Office of University Research organized and conducted a 4-day seminar to instruct transportation planners in the theory, utility, and application of emerging transportation planning techniques and to encourage their widespread use. Three basic subjects were chosen for indepth examination: (1) Transportation demand forecasting techniques; (2) Transportation evaluation methods; and (3) Transportation/land use interactions. This book contains six state-of-the-art presentations and three papers summarizing the workshop discussions and question-and-answer periods.
