ACTIVITY-BASED MODELING SYSTEM FOR TRAVEL DEMAND FORECASTING

The purpose of the study is to develop and implement a full-fledged activity-based policy analysis tool for a metropolitan region and thereby examine whether activity-based approaches can be put to practical use. In particular, the study attempts to determine whether an operational activity-based tool can be developed while utilizing available data, supplemented by a medium-scale survey that can be conducted with modest amounts of monetary and time resources. To perform this study using large-scale regional data, the contractor implemented a prototype of its Activity-Mobility Simulator (AMOS) which is a dynamic microsimulator that replicates household responses to TDM measures.
