CHARACTERISTICS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION DEMAND; A HANDBOOK FOR TRANSPORTATION PLANNERS
The handbook is intended to guide transportation planners, engineers, and decision-makers in: assessing demands for urban, highway, and transit systems; applying and validating conventional transportation planning techniques; and establishing sound transportation planning decisions. It contains characteristics of urban bus, rail, and highway systems, and urban trip-making. The handbook may be used to compare travel parameters for a given community with those in other cities, thereby providing a basis for cross-checking and refinement. As part of the Urban Transportation Planning System (UTPS) of UMTA and FHWA, it provides basic inputs to the urban transportation planning process as well as ways of checking the results for reasonableness and relevance.
