TRAVEL DEMAND FORECASTING FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING. IN: HANDBOOK OF TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING

This chapter describes how the basic purpose of transportation planning and management is to match transportation supply with travel demand, which represents the need for transportation infrastructure. A thorough understanding of existing travel pattern is necessary for identifying and analyzing existing traffic-related problems. Detailed data on current travel pattern and traffic volumes are also needed for developing travel forecasting/prediction models. The prediction of future travel demand is an essential task of the long-range transportation planning process for determining strategies to accommodate future needs. These strategies may include land use policies, pricing programs, and expansion of transportation supply-highways and transit service.
