Travel Demand Forecasting

The development of travel demand forecasts is a vital step in evaluating the future needs and demands of a transportation facility such as the number of lanes, lane configurations, type of interchange and potential for multimodal facilities and connections. Travel demand forecasts can help in the early identification of major cost implications and also factor into environmental analysis.

JMT has performed travel demand forecasting for more than 20 years through both regional travel demand models and the manual four step process. We have developed a regional forecasting model for a four county area. Other forecasting assignments include transportation plans, individual project forecasts for corridors involving transit, express toll and HOV lanes, and for environmental assessments including air and noise analysis.  Our modelers use software such as CUBE and TP+.  JMT understands the modeling process, and our staff possesses the ability to present the information in a manner that helps our clients to make informed decisions.
