1 REMI TranSight ®

2 TranSight Overview 1) What does REMI TranSight do? 2) What does the user need to provide? 3) What is the output of TranSight? 4) What are the uses of the output? 5) What makes TranSight unique? TranSight Demonstration Presentation Overview

3 TranSight ® System Travel demand model Project and region specific data EDFS-70 TranSight Policy variables EDFS-70 Policy Insight Transportation What Ifs General What Ifs Forecasting The TranSight modeling system incorporates TranSight and Policy Insight

4 TranSight ® Structure

5 1) What Does REMI TranSight Do? TranSight predicts the Total Economic and Demographic Effects of transportation improvements such as: Major Economic Component Industry Sectors Job Type Disposable Income Age, Sex and Race

6 Goethals Bridge Impact How a REMI TranSight Simulation Works Control Forecast Alternative Forecast

7 Project-Specific Information (Note: TranSight uses output from Tranplan, TransCAD or other travel demand models) All Other Economic and Demographic Data are Built into the TranSight Model – Specific To The Defined Region (such as Mississippi Development Districts – as single counties or groups of counties) 2) What Does the User Need to Provide?

8 Project-Specific Information Estimates from Tranplan or other travel demand model (e.g. VMT and VHT) Construction expenditures Funding source information (federal, state, local percentages) Optional: adjust REMI default data

9 3) What Is the Output of TranSight ® ? All major economic and demographic effects

10 TranSight ® Simulation Results: Employment Personal Income Transfer Payments Taxes Price Index Real Disposable Income Output and Gross Regional Product Population Migrants Labor Force Overall Effects for:Age/Gender/ Cohort Variables:

11 REMI TranSight ® Results: Variables by Industry Employment Intermediate Demand for Employment Local Consumption Employment Government Demand Employment Investment Activity Employment Export Employment Relative Selling Price Relative Production Costs Fuel Capital Labor Relative Factor Productivity Labor Intensity Average Annual Wage Rate Employment Mix Index Demand Imports Self Supply Exports to Other Regions Output Value Added Wage and Salary Disbursements

12 4) What Are the Uses of the Output? Ranking the most important projects Informing decision-makers and the public Showing how jobs and incomes depend on transportation

13 5) What Makes TranSight ® Unique? TranSight is the ONLY widely available model to show the total economic and demographic effects of transportation projects What are the alternatives? Simple Input-Output Model Only shows construction and maintenance impacts, and ignores dynamic effects over time

14 Advantages of TranSight ® Incorporates General Equilibrium Theory, Econometrics, Input-Output Analysis, and the New Economic Geography in a dynamic consistent system REMI has over 20 years of experience with regional policy analysis and modeling, currently supporting over 100 installations, each with multiple uses Professional articles about all key elements of the model have been peer reviewed in leading international and regional economic journals Custom data for the region being modeled

16 TranSight ® – Further Background REMI has been involved in transportation planning and analysis for 20+ years.

17 First and foremost, REMI TranSight integrates REMI Policy Insight ®the worlds leading economic and fiscal policy analysis and simulation model with the transport planning and travel demand models used most often by government and private sector planners. REMI TranSight ®

18 And because REMI Policy Insight ® embodies the latest research advances in economic geography, REMI TranSight can show transportation planners and policy makers the total economic effects of new investments in highways, transit, airport capacity, and other transportation infrastructure. REMI TranSight ®

19 In particular, REMI TranSight can quantify the unique contribution transportation investments make toward creating and expanding industry clusters, some of the main drivers in diversifying and sustaining regional economic development. REMI TranSight ®

20 Example: Goethals Bridge Replacement of the 78-year-old Goethals Bridge with new 6-lane bridge. Assume 34% increase in accessibility to traffic for the bridge. What is the effect on the economies of New York and New Jersey?

21 Employment rises…

22 …delivered prices fall…

23 …industry production costs fall…

24 …business and consumer access to commodities rises…

25 …industries have access to a larger labor force…

26 …industries have access to a more diverse labor force…

27 …and Gross Regional Product rises.

30 Why REMI TranSight ® ? Integrating transportation with economic simulation models requires a sound theoretical basis. REMI models are structurally complete, and built upon widely accepted economic theory published in rigorously referred academic journal articles. Yet the economic theory behind REMI TranSight is accessible to any thoughtful person.

31 Why REMI TranSight ® ? REMI has been involved in transportation planning for years. Below, a few examples (papers available upon request): An Evolutionary New Economic Geography Model; Wei Fan, Department of Economics, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor; Frederick Treyz and George Treyz, Regional Economic Models, Inc; Journal of Regional Science, Vol 40, No. 4, 2000 pp. 671-695.
