Moreover, the pandemic has altered travel patterns, with more workers opting to work from home. As a result, updated travel behavior data is required to more accurately reflect current conditions.

The purpose of the RTC Travel Demand Model Development Project is to create, calibrate, and validate a state-of-the-art travel demand model for the RTC. The model will incorporate components such as non-motorized, transit, visitor, and freight, as well as special market models. The model will be used to develop RTC’s 2050 Regional Transportation Plan update.
