TRB’s second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-C16-RR-1: Effect of Smart Growth Policies on Travel Demand explores the underlying relationships among households, firms, and travel demand. The report also describes a regional scenario planning tool that can be used to evaluate the impacts of various smart growth policies.
SHRP 2 Capacity Project C16 has also released the SmartGAP User’s Guide. SmartGAP is a scenario planning software tool that synthesizes households and firms in a region and determines their travel demand characteristics based on their built environment and transportation policies.
A zipped version of the SmartGAP software is available for download.
