Chapter 4 1 Chapter 4. Modeling Transportation Demand and Supply 1.List the four steps of transportation demand analysis 2.List the four steps of travel demand forecasting modeling process 3.Identify, quantify, and discuss the relationship between land use and transportation activity 4.Calculate estimates of the number of trips “generated” by a particular land use 5.Explain the purpose of Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZs) 6.Explain two-way relationship between land use and travel We cover only 4.1 in this class. By the end of this section the student will be able to: Topics of Chapter 4 and Chapter 5 will be covered in CEEn 565 Urban Transportation Planning taught by Dr. Schultz. (It will be offered in the fall semester every year.) If you are planning to take CEEn 565 keep this textbook because Dr. Schultz covers the entire materials of Chapters 4 and 5 of this textbook as part of his course.

Mythaca’s congestion problem (SR361) 2Chapter 4

3 Mythaca’s congestion problem (SR361): one solution (bypass) and change in traffic

4Chapter 4 4.1.1 Anticipating future network needs Transportation planning is a process that involves: the analysis of current travel patterns, the forecasting of future travel patterns (Transportation Demand Analysis), the proposal of transportation infrastructure and services, and the evaluation of proposed alternative projects to be considered by decision makers for implementation The result is a plan – A set of improvements to be considered by decision makers. Basic concepts of travel demand modeling: Travel demand is a derived demand Travel patterns are influenced by land use Individuals’ decision making habits influence travel demand http://www.envisionutah.org http://www.mountainland.org/

5Chapter 4 Data collection (population, land use, etc.) Economic activity (employment, sales volume, income, etc.), land use (type, intensity), travel characteristics (trip and traveler profile), and transportation facilities (capacity, travel speed, etc.), population and demography, Origin- destination trip data. Analysis of existing conditions and calibration Analyze the data collected in the data collection stage. You may build mathematical models to describe the existing conditions and then use the relationships you have found in the existing parameters to forecast future values. Forecast of future travel demand 4-step transportation demand forecasting modeling process Analysis of the results Analyze what you get from the 4-step demand forecasting process General 4 steps of transportation demand analysis

6Chapter 4 4-step transportation demand forecasting modeling process Preparation: population and economic analysis and land use analysis Trip generation Determines how many trips each activity (center) (residential area, commercial area, etc) will produce or attract Trip distribution Determines the origin or destination of trips that are generated at a given activity Modal split Determines which mode of transportation will be used to make the trip Traffic assignment Determines which route on the transportation network will be used when making the trip

7Chapter 4 Travel demand forecasting modeling process (4-step model) 1.Should I make a trip? 2.What should be my destination? 3.What mode of transportation should I use? 4.What route or path should I take? p.187 Think About It: Think back to the last four or five trips you made. Did you ask yourself any or all of the four questions above? If so, in what order did you consider the questions.

8Chapter 4 4.1.2 Land use and tripmaking Finding how many trips are generated from a zone is the first step of urban transportation demand modeling. At a macro level, it is a region wide demand forecasting and at a micro level the public agency wants to know how many trips a development in a land can produce – like how many trips a planned Walmart might produce. Tripmakers Land use Transportation facilities MAG’s 2040 Transportation Plan Demand Forecasting

9Chapter 4 Estimating the number of trips generated: CEEn 565 deals with various methods to do this step, but in this lecture, we use charts found in the ITE Trip Generation Handbook to show you how to get quickly ballpark estimates – and of course a few pitfalls... (Walk through Example 4.1.)

10Chapter 4 Analysis zones for transportation study (TAZ), p.194-196 First, we need to divide the study area into smaller zones of (hopefully) uniform land use Dense area, in terms of population and businesses, has more zones. Zones usually get larger in less dense areas. More reasonable to use TAZ than a site-by-site analysis when regional planning is done. Standard trip generation methods: site-based zone-based household-based

11Chapter 4 Link-node map for highway system  Link-node maps are the starting point for the 4-step transportation demand forecasting process

12Chapter 4 Graphical way of understanding the 4-step demand forecasting process 1000 trips generated in zone 46: residential area zone 1000 trips attracted to zone 29: employment center 200 trips from zone 46 to zone 29 Auto total: 95% (190 trips) Public transit: 5% (10 trips) 70% this route (140 trips) 25% this route (50 trips)
