TRANSLINKS 21 TRANSPORTATION PLAN: INTERCITY MODAL FORECASTS AND INTERACTIONS

This paper, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, summarizes the intercity multimodal forecasts used in the Wisconsin Department of Transportation's Translinks 21 Transportation Plan. It discusses the plan's forecasting and analysis methodology, which considers the interactions between and among both passenger and freight modes. Passenger forecasts were prepared using a newly developed intercity passenger demand forecasting model. Freight forecasts were developed using a statewide commodity flow data base and the advice of freight experts. Total trips for all modes were forecast to increase. Planned passenger and freight improvements has a relatively modest impact statewide on intercity auto and truck travel.
