TRAVEL DEMAND FORECASTING

The eight papers in this record reflect recent findings on the interactions between travel behavior assumptions and the resulting travel models and forecasts made with these assumptions. What emerges from these papers in that the forecasting models being used for the past 20 years have their implicit rules of behavior. These rules are not only those implied by the independent variables included and the coefficients estimated, but also those on the structure of the travel choices and choice alternatives over which the models should be applied. Lack of knowledge of a model's implied choice behavior may lead to grievous errors in applications. This can result in complicated models always being needed when confronted with high-capital transportation investment decisions.
