A review of the data regularly monitored under the surveillance element of the continuing, comprehensive and cooperative transportation planning process is annually undertaken to provide a current picture of travel conditions in the Baltimore Region and the underlying social, economic, and developmental factors affecting travel. As part of this effort, trends and patterns in the use and performance of the transportation system are identified as are trends and patterns in regional growth. The annual review is also undertaken to assess the implications of actual changes on future travel requirements. An investigation of the reasonableness of the projected patterns of growth used in simulating travel is conducted to determine whether the forecasts are consistent with observed changes. This aspect of the review, not only illustrates the types and magnitude of travel changes that could be expected if trends continue but provides some insight as to whether modifications to the transportation plan and program are appropriate.
