Development of Time-of-Day Modeling Procedures Using FSUTMS Powered by Cube Voyager

Contracting Agency: Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)
Principal Investigator: Yafeng Yin, Ph.D. and Siva Srinivasan, Ph.D.

The Florida Standard Urban Transportation Modeling Structure (FSUTMS) currently models daily travel demand and then produces estimates of peak volumes through a simple post-processing routine. However, there are pressing needs to address planning issues and answer questions that are time-of-day related. In recognition of the importance of modeling travel demand by time of day, this research project has (1) developed time-of-day factors using travel survey data from the different parts of the state, (2) evaluated the existing transit time-of-day modeling procedures and suggested enhancements to conform to the FTA New Starts analysis requirements, (3) investigated modeling high-occupancy/toll lane operations within the FSUTMS framework, and (4) assessed the ability to model the peak-spreading phenomenon within the FSUTMS framework.
