PMSS Project Details


Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-11-0055
Project Name: Foundational Knowledge to Support a Long-Distance Passenger Travel Demand Modeling Framework
Status: Active
Last Name:Gudzinas
First Name:Brad
Office: Data not yet available
Team:Highway Policy
Project Description:The research will attempt to develop an approach for model components, estimating models to test each hypothesis, identifying data limitations and making recommendations for data collection, and developing the framework for a national passenger long-distance model.
Start Date: July 20, 2011
End Date: October 19, 2014
Goals:The key project objective is to explore new ways to simulate behavior of long-distance passenger movements.
Test Methodology: Modeling
Expected Benefits:The expected benefits are more effective and less costly methods for national, multimodal passenger surveying and forecasting.
Keywords: Research
