NETWORK DOCUMENTATION: 1990 EXPANDED-CORDON TRANSIT NETWORK. (WITH REVISED CODING METHODOLOGY TO SUPPORT ENHANCED MODEL SETS.)

This report describes the revised 1990 expanded-cordon transit network, one of a series of simulation networks that have been developed by the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments Transportation Planning Board (COG/TPB) to represent the regional transit system in the Washington metropolitan area. The networks developed this year have been enhanced to accommodate significant model improvements and to reflect a vastly expanded model area. The modeled area covers about 7,300 square miles (11,745.7 km), including the District of Columbia and twenty other jurisdictions over a three state area (MD, VA, and WV). The area is divided into 1,966 traffic analysis zones and has 47 external stations. The network is comprised of 26,500 links and 16,200 nodes. Transit service offered by Metrorail, Metrobus, other local bus service, commuter bus, and commuter rail is represented in the network. In all, the network comprises 1,040 transit lines. The Metrorail system includes 63 stations, 69 miles (111.02 km) of track, and four lines (Red, Blue, Orange, and Yellow).
