Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 36-09. Statewide Travel Forecasting Models

Since ISTEA required formal state transportation plans and programs covering all modes of transportation, there has been strong interest among many state DOT's in developing statewide travel forecasting models. As a result of this interest, TRB sponsored its first conference on statewide travel forecasting in 1998 in Irvine, CA. At that conference, a summary of recent efforts to develop statewide models was presented. In addition, about 15 states indicated that they were either in the process of developing models or seriously considering doing so. There are many challenges in developing statewide models. The characteristics of statewide travel are often considerably different than travel in metropolitan areas. Another concern is how to integrate statewide and metropolitan models. Since many of the states have had experience in developing these models, now is the appropriate time to conduct a review of these efforts and publish it in a Synthesis report so that states can benefit from each others' experiences.
