APPLICATIONS OF NEW TRAVEL DEMAND FORECASTING TECHNIQUES TO TRANSPORTATION PLANNING. A STUDY OF INDIVIDUAL CHOICE MODELS

The report documents the application of individual choice (disaggregate) travel demand models in urban transportation planning. Three general areas of application are covered: (1) The traditional travel demand forecasting process; (2) short range, transportation systems management evaluation; and (3) patronage and revenue forecasting for new transportation systems. For each application, the suitability of the model is discussed, recent applications are summarized, and two detailed case studies are presented to demonstrate how the models were used. A short primer on individual choice models is included to provide the planner with enough information to understand how the models work and their differences from more conventional planning models. References are given for those who would like to know more about individual choice models.
