New Tools for Estimating Walking and Bicycling Demand
(rebroadcast from Feb. 18)
The NCHRP project 08-78 developed new methods for estimating bicycle and pedestrian demand for planning and project development. The project’s final report is NCHRP 770, a guidebook that presents an array of methods for planning applications with context and instruction on their selection and use. This webinar focuses on a new tool outlined in NCHRP 770 that enables practitioners to estimate demand from the interaction of land use and transportation.
The new multimodal accessibility tool allows planners to include all modes of travel in an analysis and examines changes in the pattern of land use or the travel network to determine which strategy provides the greatest benefits.
This session will review the limitations of current models for estimating demand, describe the research behind the development of the new tool, and give examples of how the model is being used at regional, corridor and neighborhood levels.
