MAKING THE LAND USE/TRANSPORTATION/AIR QUALITY CONNECTION: VOLUME 1 - MODELING PRACTICES

"Making the Land Use, Transportation, Air Quality Connection" (LUTRAQ) is a national demonstration project to develop methodologies for creating and evaluating alternative land use patterns and design standards that will: reduce dependence on automotive travel; increase mobility for all segments of society; minimize negative environmental impacts, particularly those on air quality; reduce energy consumption; and foster a strong sense of community character. Using a proposed $200 million bypass freeway around the Portland, Oregon metropolitan region as a case study, LUTRAQ will (1) identify alternative land use development patterns that reduce travel demand and increase the use of alternative travel modes, and (2) develop reliable transportation modeling procedures that forecast the travel behavior associated with these alternative land use patterns. The LUTRAQ project contains six primary tasks, of which this report addresses the first, Task A - Analyze Current Model Limitations. The report contains three chapters. The first is a summary of currently available interactive transportation and land use modeling systems. The second is a survey of the state of the practice in transportation and land use forecasting at the metropolitan level in the United States today. The third is a description and analysis of the transportation and land use forecasting system used in the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.
