Intended Audience

This webinar is intended for modelers who are interested in what makes a hybrid model different from a four-step or activity-based model and how it is hoped to be useful for answering new planning issues.


This webinar gives an overview of hybrid trip-based/tour-based models. It describes their components as well as key similarities and differences compared to four-step and activity-based models. MPO representatives will also speak to some of the intended applications motivating their adoption of the model design.
