FORECASTING TRAVEL TIME

The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act and the Clean Air Act Amendments have changed transportation forecasting from level-of-service estimates to measures of travel time and cost. Because the vast majority of demand modeling efforts focus on replicating traffic volumes and transit ridership, the objective of this paper is to identify potential alternate methods of addressing travel time. Some methods focus on simple enhancements to existing modeling techniques. Others focus on more advanced applications and model development efforts. In both instances, potential data sources and calibration procedures are discussed, and the pros and cons for each method are presented. This paper appears in a compendium of conference papers.
