Travel Forecasting Guide


The purpose of TFGuide is to evaluate the properties of travel forecasting methods and their value in addressing transportation planning requirements for specific plans and programs. This tool provides the first aspect of an overall forecasting process. TFGuide provides resources and recommendations for evaluating travel forecasting methods that are prioritized based on how well they meet the user-defined planning needs and constraints. Note that the timeline and cost estimates used in TFGuide only include analysis work, and some plans and projects may require costs for non-analytical work.
