TRAVEL ANALYSIS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE FUTURE
The paper reports on a study to evaluate results from various policy scenarios tested in the SANBAG Mode Choice Model used for travel forecasting. An attempt was made to predict transit ridership if one or a combination of several changes occur in the factors affecting travel characteristics in the San Bernardino Valley Metropolitan area. All tests were made using variations of two basic transportation systems -- a historical base of 1970 highway and transit networks and future year systems networks. The policy variables tested were auto operating costs, auto parking costs (in major commercial areas), transit running speed, transit fares, and auto occupancy. The scenarios tested were identified as Base, Moderate, and Extreme.
