Travel demand modeling
See Activity-Based Travel Demand Models: A Primer (2014) 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.
