Mega-Regional Travel

This project will work toward a multi-disciplinary, multi-modal, multi-level modeling system for the nation's operative regions for global economic competition. The analysis focuses on a critical, overarching, complex, and vexing aspect of transportation policy decisions: how the cost and the pricing of different regional transportation investments affects travel performance in the large mega-region. The project will conduct a number of transportation pricing experiments and examine how changes in prices affect travel behavior, land use, economic growth, residential energy consumption, and regional environmental impacts.
