INTERACTIVE STATEWIDE TRANSPORTATION PLANNING MODELING PROCESS

The Wyoming Multimodal Statewide Transportation Planning (WMSTP) model study was initiated to develop a user-friendly and data-efficient planning process to fulfill Wyoming's statewide planning needs. Described is a cooperative process developed by the University of Wyoming and the Wyoming Department of Transportation. Traditional four-step urban transportation planning models have been used extensively in statewide transportation planning (STP) processes. The Wyoming STP modeling process considers the unique nature of STP processes and travel characteristics in Wyoming. Trip purposes were redefined to fit STP needs. The WMSTP model is a planner-computer interactive process. The process uses traffic count and socioeconomic data as the primary inputs, in addition to the knowledge of the planner. Windows-based computer software packages including Excel, Visual Basic 3.0, and QRS II were used in developing the interactive planning model. To date, the model framework has been established, and the model building and sensitivity analysis have been undertaken.
