  • Abstract:
    Travel demand models are widely used for forecasting and analyzing policies for automobile and transit travel. However, these models are typically developed for average weekday travel when regular activities are routine. The weekday models focus primarily on peak period travel, which are dominated with work and school trips. Given that weekend travel is largely generated for discretionary activities and is significantly affected by seasonal variation and special events, it is not surprising that weekday models are not adequate to forecast weekend travel. This report documents an effort to develop a pilot weekend travel demand forecast and mode choice model for New Jersey. The research team utilized a holistic approach that balances state of art research and practical modeling applications for multiple agencies. The pilot model, produced via enumeration applications, not only incorporated up-to-date understanding of dynamics of weekend travel behavior but also obtained consensus from various agencies in New Jersey so it will be implemented.
