MWCOG'S MULTI-YEAR MODELS DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR MEETING ISTEA/CAAA

The requirements imposed by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act and the Clean Air Act Amendments on transportation demand models have been challenging for the Washington, D.C., region, which encompasses a multi-state area and is classified as a serious ozone non-attainment area. A group--consisting of Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments staff, local transportation agencies, consultants, and public interest groups--has established a multi-year models development plan to comprehensively and realistically meet the new requirements and to address peripheral issues associated with the development of a revised model set. This paper, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, summarizes the evolution and present status of the models development plan including an overview of the past and present model structures, the identification and evaluation of needed improvements, and the effort to incorporate a substantial cordon expansion into the model development process.
