Combined travel forecasting models: Formulations and algorithms

Hillel Bar-Gera, David Boyce

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


When planning improvements to transportation systems, various alternatives are considered. Careful evaluation requires forecasts of travel patterns for each alternative. Travel patterns are the result of many choices. Traditional modeling practice considers these choices as a sequential process with unique order: activity location choice (trip generation), joint choice of origin and destination (trip distribution), mode choice and finally route choice (assignment). Despite its intuitive appeal, justification for this order is not as trivial as it may seem.
