CHARACTERISTICS OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION DEMAND: A NEW DATA BANK

The Characteristics of Urban Transportation Demand is the third manual in an ongoing Urban Mass Transportation Administration-Federal Highway Administration series designed to provide real-world information for practicing transportation professionals. The manual is a single reference source on the characteristics of urban transportation demand. This paper reviews the manual's objectives, sources, content, and structure and illustrates how it can be used for inputs to and cross-checks of the long-range urban transportation planning process. The manual sets forth important controls for the number, type, and length of trips, as well as for freeway and rail transit use. Rail transit ridership, for example, relies closely on the number of people crossing the downtown cordon and on the number of workers in the central business district. (Author)
