DEVELOPMENT OF AN AGGREGATE MODEL OF URBANIZED AREA TRAVEL BEHAVIOR: PHASE 1

This is the final report of Phase I of a project to develop an aggregated travel demand model for use in urbanized area prediction. The model is designed to be applied in the context of the Department of Transportation TRANS model and is based on the aggregation to the urban area wide level of disaggregate travel demand models. Phase I of the project was concerned with the investigation of alternative aggregation procedures. The results of this theoretical and empirical investigation are summarized in this report. In Phase II of this project the results of Phase I will be used to develop an overall aggregation procedure operating on a full set of disaggregate travel demand models. This report describes the implications of the Phase I results and outlines the approach for the overall aggregate forecasting process to be developed in Phase II.
