THE USE OF INTERCITY MULTIMODAL FORECASTING MODELS BY THE USA DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

The DOT (Department of Transportation) has carried out several studies of alternatives for providing short-haul passenger service in the United States. The author mentions four such studies, in particular the Northeast Corridor Transportation Project, and gives the conclusions from the latter. The author discusses some of the models employed, such as forecasting models, demand and modal split models, use of judgement, independence of irrelevant alternatives, non-quantifiable attributes, and gives a few numerical examples of divergencies in results from forecasting models.
