AMBAG Model Improvement Plan

The existing AMBAG Regional Travel Demand Model (RTDM) meets best practice standards. However, a 2011 Trave Model Improvement Program (TMIP) peer review provided a series of recommendations to advance the current AMBAG RTDM. The Model Improvement Plan is the plan to implement many of the short and mid-term recommendations made by the TMIP peer review committee. The improvements will result in a new hybrid model that will help to transition AMBAG from a traditional four step regional travel demand model to an activity based model. The new hybrid model will be available for public use after June of 2014.
