TMIP Webinar: Transferability: How to Make it Work Best for Your Model

2:00 - 4:30pm EST

Presented by Thomas F. Rossi (Cambridge Systematics, Inc.) and Chandra R. Bhat (University of Texas, Austin)

The mathematical relationships in travel models depend on parameters that reflect the sensitivity of travelers’ choices to the model’s input variables. The process of model transfer from one region to another has become commonplace as a way to obtain model parameter estimated when sufficient local data for model estimation. This webinar will provide guidance to transportation planners on alternative approaches to model transfer based on the amount of available resources. The guidance is based on research that has been conducted on model transferability, which indicates mixed results for model transferability.

The focus of the webinar will be on specific ways in which modelers can choose the best methods and practices for transferring model parameters given the types of models and data available. Planners in many cases may have superior alternatives to the use of national average parameters, especially when some local data are available. Transferability results may be improved through use of small amounts of local data in an updating process when transferring models. This webinar seeks to present that knowledge to provide planners along with practical guidance in determining the best transfer methods for their unique situations. The guidance includes variable specification, model updating procedures using some local data, procedures to use when local data are unavailable, and use of data from national sources. Simple examples of the various model transfer methods will be presented.
