MODEL ENHANCEMENTS FOR EVALUATION OF PRICING STRATEGIES IN SUPPORT OF CAA 90 REQUIREMENTS

In most of the larger urbanized areas, a travel forecasting model is used to estimate tripmaking activity for future years. Various other impacts can be derived from these traffic estimates, such as average speed and vehicle-miles of travel (VMT). Estimates of mobile source emissions can then be calculated using the characteristics of this projected travel. This project used various models in a somewhat unusual approach for two reasons. First, in reviewing the many good models that exist in different urban areas, it was believed possible to create a model set that could serve this study's purposes by borrowing parts from the critical features of those models and assembling them into one model set that would exhibit reasonable sensitivities towards pricing measures. Second, the resulting model would not be biased towards any one urban area, but would represent a composite picture of several areas.
