Subject   Travel Demand Model documentation for Missoula


In a travel demand model, roadway networks are the computerized
representation of the roadway system in Bozeman, , and Billings
that contain a plethora of data inputs. The data arrays include
such attributes as: speed, capacity, functional classification,
retail employment, and dwelling units. The list of data inputs
is very impressive and will be brought forth in detail at some
point. Roadway networks represent the Major Street Network (MSN)
as well as an up to date inventory of all roads in the county.
Horizon year networks begin with the base-line network and
include additional capacity improvements and new link additions
as identified by the local planning bodies.

In the model, the roadway network is used to distribute and
assign trips by way of the production and attraction dichotomy.
The production is the trip originating at the household. The
attraction is the trip ending at a retail or non-retail
employment destination. The travel demand model is the medium
that hosts the traditional four step process: production,
distribution, mode split, and assignment.

Network Structure
Local streets are included in the network to flesh out the
universe of trip assignment. Local streets typically provide the
pavement to go from the home to the collector street networks and
on to the arterial streets. Local streets provide access to
various land uses. Arterials typically provide for longer
distance trips from place to place. While the centroid is the
center of the Traffic Analysis Zone (TAZ) and the centroid
connector provides the leap for the land use information to model
network, the local street is a more realistic form to illustrate
the full extent of the network in its computerized splendor. A
local street is usually included only after it has posed a
problem for local planners with exceedingly high traffic counts.
In order to maintain a semblance of order for the ‘problematic’
nature of high traffic counts the complete local street inventory
is included to provide a context in which to fully understand the
traffic patterns.

In each of the cities modeled here for this document the latest
roadway network at the time came from various sources. In the
case of Bozeman, the centerline file was provided by the
Emergency 9-11 office. Outer county roads in Madison, Park,
southern Jefferson and Meagher counties were incorporated in an
attempt to capture the roadway network utilized by the vast
majority of participants who live, work, and shop in Bozeman.
The case for was slightly different, the City of and County
provided the initial center line file. The travel demand picture
for is greatly influenced by trips originating outside the
county, particularly Ravalli County. According to Bureau of
Census, the largest body of commuters from one county to another
is the Ravalli to group. Second is Jefferson to Lewis & Clark
County.   The third case is Billings, where there is also Laurel
in close proximity. The two communities, urbanized and urban are
the nuclei of the largest county in Montana population wise.
Billings is actually the economic hub of eastern Montana reaching
all the way to the Dakotas and Wyoming. Stillwater, Big Horn,
Treasure, Sweet Grass and Carbon counties rely on the Billing
economic powerhouse and Billings supplies the mining interests in
Stillwater County with highly skilled employees.

Here area types are melded in the model environment: Urbanized,
urban, and rural. Billings and represent the urbanized
communities. Bozeman, Livingston, Laurel and Belgrade are the
urban communities. Cites that make up the rural streetscape are
Hamilton, East , Bonner, Three Forks, Red Lodge, Columbus, Park
City, are but a few.

The key input into network structure is travel time. A
calculated variable that blends length with speed. The speed is
the posted speed in most instances, but like travel in much of
Montana the speed can be higher or lower than the posted speed
limit signs indicate. The assignment process utilizes the
shortest travel time path for each trip. It is assumed that each
trip produced from the household is satisfied by each attraction
that is the closest or shortest travel time path.

Capacity is another input into the network structure but it is of
lesser importance than speed vis-a-vis travel time. The Highway
Capacity Manual defines capacity as the volume of traffic that
can traverse a link in a reasonable amount of time.

The network line layer is in the projection: NAD83, 2500 Montana, in meters.

Layers, show node layer. The node selection is [TAZ:1]<>0 with the set name TAZ.
This turns all the centroids to a green color.
The network is created by choosing link fields travel time, capacity, alpha, and beta. The
network settings are created from the node selection set with 7,674 centroids. The global
turn penalties are:

Left turn penalty is 0.5 minutes
Right turn penalty is 0.25 minutes
u-turn turn penalty is 1 minute
through movement 0.01 minutes.
The specific turn penalty is set for certain movements. Those include the Jackrabbit
interchange EB ramps and others.

The next step is to establish the multiple paths table that minimizes travel time from
TAZ to TAZ.

Trip Generation

Using the look up table as modified from the NCHRP 187 Manual updated to the
NCHRP 365 Manual this table was developed: MT 78 2000 MOD_365_PROD_TGP,
which is the file that allocates trips based on median family income for the trip
production phase. Trip Generation uses the Census Block layer to find the number of
households and uses the look up table based on median family income after it was
adjusted for time based on the Consumer Price Index. Trip Attractions use the lookup
table ATTR_TGP that comes stock with the TransCAD program. It is also based on
dwelling units, retail employment and nonretail employment. Using the Quick Response
Method, to create the QRM_All.bin file we have the total number of productions and
attractions for each TAZ. The next step is to balance the productions and attractions.
Using vector settings for Vector 1 is the HBW_P and the Vector 2 is the HBW_A. The
method is to hold vector 1 constant and balance from and holding vector 2 to vector 1
while ignoring the external stations. That routine is the same for HBNW_P and
HBNW_A. But is reversed for NHB trips where Vector 2 is held constant and Vector 1
is balanced to Vector 2.

The intrazonal impedance calculation factors by 0.5 and adjacent zones is set to 8. once
this matrix is created, a specific intrazonal travel time for the external stations is
determined. Since the friction factor table is a 300 minute duration, 300 minutes is used
for the external stations.

Using the multiple path matrix as a basis for calculating the trip distribution, the gravity
model is first employed. Based on the 300 minute friction factor table that establishes the
likely hood of trip exchanges between centroids determined by travel time on the network
between the TAZs. Grouped by trip purpose: Home Based Work (HBW), Home Based
Non Work (HBNW), and Non Home Based (NHB), the trip exchange is started. The
HBW trip converged in 39 iterations, the HBNW trip converged in 48 iterations, and the
NHB trip converged in 44 iterations.

The external stations are calculated based on traffic counts performed around the cordon
line around the study area. The external stations are represented in the model as the
significant roadways that feed the trips from outside the study area.

PA to OD

Up next is PA to OD. When we were running the gravity model to produce the gravity
matrix we were taking the trip generation module which created the trip productions and
the trip attractions and shoving them across the network based on the liability of the
friction factor table. So that each zone exchanges a certain amount of trips from each
other TAZ, based on the friction impedance of the multiple path matrix. This step
transitions the productions and attractions into origin and destinations. PA to OD is also
where mode split is applied. In the case of the Bozeman model, transit is ignored as a
separate entity. We are left with vehicle occupancy by trip type. The vehicle occupancy
for HBW is 1.1 persons per vehicle. The vehicle occupancy for HBNW is 1.6 persons
per vehicle. The vehicle occupancy is 1.4 persons per vehicle. The PA to OD matrix is
then summed.


Planning Single Class Assignment-traffic assignment

The iterations is 20 to 250, if it converges before 20, the network should be in fine shape.
Under options, choose Create Themes so the output has a nice flow diagram with colors.
If the goal is to create turning movements then a selection set of those intersections is
created and the Report Turns media button is activated.
