Transferability of Activity-Based Model Parameters

View Cover




TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-C10A-RW-2: Transferability of Activity-Based Model Parameters explores the development of regional activity-based modeling systems for these cities.

The report also examines the concept of transferability of parameters as a means to save metropolitan planning organizations from the need to invest in data collection and model estimation, with the goal of making activity-based models practical for a wider market.

The same project that developed this report also produced a report titled Dynamic, Integrated Model System: Jacksonville-Area Application that explores development of a dynamic integrated travel demand model with advanced policy analysis capabilities.

Capacity Project C10A developed a start-up guide for the application of the DaySim activity-based demand model and a TRANSIMS network for Burlington, Vermont, to test linking the demand and network models before transferring the model structure to the larger Jacksonville, Florida, area. The two model applications used in these locations are currently available.
