TRANSIMS Evaluation and Feasibility: Application in Delaware

TRANSIMS is a new and extensive modeling system for travel demand forecasting, developed by Los Alamos National Laboratories, and funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and TMIP. TRANSIMS implements improved methodology of the microscopic, disaggregate, activity-based travel demand model. This report provides the architecture, the functions, and the operations of TRANSIMS, and explains how TRANSIMS was tested in two settings in Delaware one for the City of Newark and the other for Northern New Castle County.
