WORKSHOP ON QUICK-RESPONSE URBAN TRAVEL ESTIMATION PROCEDURES

The quick-response techniques, addressed in the workshop, are not viewed as replacing conventional planning tools but rather as supplementing them. The basic materials used for the workshops were a user's guide, an instructor's notebook, a student's notebook, and visual aids. The User's Guide provides three scenario applications that can be followed by those who wish to solve similar problems: impact of residential development and shopping center location the surrounding street system in a small urban areas, a highway corridor analysis in a medium-sized urban area, and an application of highway-spacing procedures in a portion of a large urbanized area. The three workshops averaged approximately 40 students per session with three instructors, who provided them with sufficient assistance in working on class problems as well as on a comprehensive problem that was woven through the three days of instruction. A typical workshop agenda included the following topics: trip generation, trip distribution, mode choice analysis, automobile occupancy characteristics, time-of-day characteristics, traffic analysis, and capacity analysis.
