Abstract

This report summarizes the results of an evaluation of the Travel Model Improvement Program (TMIP) Peer Review Program. The purpose of the evaluation was to understand the value to transportation planning host agencies of a peer review of their travel demand model. The study involved interviewing modeling staff from eight metropolitan planning agencies that have hosted a TMIP-sponsored peer review of their travel demand model.

Major findings are detailed below, grouped into four categories: motivations for conducting a peer review, planning the peer review, implementing technical recommendations, and overall satisfaction with the process. Following the findings, recommendations for enhancing peer reviews and the peer review process are presented.
