This document contains the theory and method of operation for the Transit Ridership Forecasting Model (TRFM). TRFM is a fully interactive, color graphics program that aids estimation of ridership on single transit routes. It is based on the four-step procedure for ridership forecasting (trip generation, trip distribution, mode split and trip assignment). TRFM runs on the Apple II series of microcomputers. Sections of this document are devoted to data input procedures, representation of transit routes as networks, advanced methods of analyzing transit routes and the various algorithms in the model. This document also provides guidelines to the experienced programmer who may wish to modify or enhance TRFM for specialized purposes.
