CALGARY GOPLAN: MEASURING MOBILITY BENEFITS USING THE CALGARY REGIONAL MODEL
The Calgary GoPlan Project is using a transportation demand forecasting model called the Calgary Regional Model for the assessment of alternative policy scenarios. One of the elements considered in this assessment is the quality of the travel mobility provided in each scenario, termed the 'relative mobility benefits'. This report describes the basis of the numerical measures used to represent relative mobility benefits, including both their theoretical foundation and the manner of their calculation as part of the Calgary Regional Model. There are three such measures, which together provide a numerical indication expressed in dollars of the relative satisfaction that Calgarians travelling in the a.m. peak hour by auto, public transit, or walking associate with alternative transportation policy scenarios.
