FORECASTING INTERCITY TRAVEL

The principal concern of the study is an assessment of new transport technologies with respect to their practical application in specific market situations. The assessment requires an estimate of (1) the modal split (or the fraction of the total market attracted to each mode), (2) the relationship between the total volume and the level of service, and (3) a forecast of the total market over the next fifteen to twenty years. The forecasting technique is thus designed to answer specific questions concerning the volume of traffic that arise when major changes are made to the transportation system with respect to travel times, fares, and frequency of service.
