Regional Travel Demand Model

To support the metropolitan transportation planning activities and decision making process AMBAG staff develops, maintains and applies a Regional Travel Demand Model (RTDM). The AMBAG RTDM has been peer reviewed and meets best practice standards. A Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) sponsored TMIP peer review was conducted in 2013 to review the newly updated AMBAG model and discuss future model needs and improvements.

The Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) determines what transportation projects are programmed into the RTDM. The current RTDM reflects transportation projects adopted by the AMBAG Board of Directors in June of 2014.
