Travel Demand Forecasting

Forecasting Our Future Transportation Needs

In our increasingly complex world, decision makers need solid, reliable information on which to base difficult choices. Today’s state-of-the-art travel forecast models address a piece of this challenge by allowing us to see the potential impacts and outcomes of various policy and program options.

How we do travel demand forecasting

    • Travel Demand Forecasting Model - Travel demand forecasting utilizes a travel forecasting model and attempts to answer important questions about how people will travel, how much congestion there will be, and more.

    • Activity-Based Model - The Baltimore region is transitioning from an aggregate to disaggregate travel simulation tool which meets the changing demographic and socioeconomic environment, land use change, and planning needs and challenges in the region.
    • Modeling Truck & Commercial Vehicle Travel– The Baltimore Regional Transportation Board recognizes the important role that freight plays in our regional economy and quality of life. 

Who works on travel demand forecasting?

  • Technical Committee – The Technical Committee reviews and evaluates all transportation plans and programs from a technical standpoint.
