STATEWIDE TRAVEL FORECASTING PROCEDURES INCLUDING ACTIVITY ALLOCATION AND WEEKEND TRAVEL. PHASE II. WEEKEND TRAVEL MODEL
The report presents findings of analysis of weekend vehicular travel characteristics. In addition, interrelationships between weekend vehicular travel and influencing factors are analyzed through the development of a sequential weekend travel demand model (consisting of trip generation, trip distribution and trip assignment) for peak period and average daily traffic. Peak period trip generation rates were obtained using cross-classification techniques. An innovative stochastic simulation model (a technique to simulate travel characteristics based on probabilities of trip generation by land use type and trip length frequency distributions) is used to distribute weekend vehicular trips by different time periods. The model was applied to the state of Connecticut weekend travel as a test case.
