See Activity-Based Travel Demand Models: A Primer (2014)[1] for a summary description of travel demand modeling. Chapter 1 covers Why do we model travel? and What is a travel demand model?

Among the approaches to travel demand models are:

  • Sketch-Planning Models
  • Strategic-Planning Models
  • Trip-Based Models
  • Activity-Based Models

Travel demand models can be single mode or multimodal. For information about modeling transit demand see: Ridership forecasting.
