TRB Special Report: Metropolitan Travel Forecasting: Current Practice and Future Direction

A Transportation Research Board (TRB) study committee has developed recommendations to stimulate creativity and willingness to innovate in producing new models for metropolitan travel demand forecasting that consider multimodal and operational needs, environmental assessments, revenue sources, and policy alternatives and that meet federal and state regulatory requirements. The committee noted that no single approach or set of procedures for travel forecasting is correct for all applications or for all metropolitan planning organizations, and that travel forecasting tools should be appropriate to the questions posed and to the types of analysis conducted.
