NY Statewide Behavioral Equity Impact Decision Support Tool with Replica

Replica has developed a consistent, nationwide activity-based synthetic population that can be used by local agencies across the country. The research team will partner with Replica to use NY State data to build out a behavioral response decision support tool designed to measure impacts on equity for different transportation systems design change. Discrete choice models will be developed for up to 8 different population segments divided over three binary dimensions ( e.g. age, income, essential workers ) for tour-based mode choice. A novel methodology based on inverse optimization will be used so that deterministic heterogeneous parameters can be derived for each individual. This allows more consistent, interpretative behavioral response modeling in optimizing service design, including large-scale maximization of equity in service region design. This will identify underserved communities in rural areas that would best benefit from introducing new mobility services under a fixed statewide deployment budget.
