URBAN TRANSPORTATION MODELING AND PLANNING

This book examines in detail the available techniques and current research in travel-forecasting procedures. In an effort to maintain some perspective on the primary uses, the techniques are examined within the broader construct of the transportation planning process. The evolution of the transportation planning process is outlined and some of the fundamental processes associated with forecasting procedures are highlighted. System analysis and economic aspects are covered as well as fundamental concerns related to model building. The relative importance and interactions of the forecasting or modeling procedures are discussed, and the individual steps involved in the procedures are detailed. The theory, and concepts are described of 4 recent approaches to replacing the conventional travel forecasting process. The direct traffic-estimation method, the spatial-distribution model theory, the theory of econometric models, and behavioral travel-demand models are detailed.
