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 planning area and a section of Storey County, including the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center (TRI Center) and the City of Fernley. The model will incorporate components such as non-motorized, transit, visitor, and freight, as well as special market models. Furthermore, it will feature better highway and transit network management and efficient tools that provide summary reports and the EPA MOVES input data processing. The model will be used to develop RTC’s 2050 Regional Transportation Plan update.
