The Travel Model Improvement Program addresses the linkage of transportation to air quality, energy, economic growth, land use and overall quality of life. The program addresses both analytic tools and the integration of these tools into the planning process to better support decision makers. The program has the following objectives: to increase the policy sensitivity of existing travel forecasting procedures and their capacity to respond to emerging issues, including environmental concerns, growth management, and changes in personal and household activity patterns, along with the traditional transportation issues; to redesign the travel forecasting process to reflect today's traveler behavior, to respond to greater information needs placed on the forecasting process, and to take advantage of changes in data collection technology; and to make travel forecasting model results more useful for decision makers.
