# What is the Travel Forecasting Resource ?

This project came about due to a TRB research project designed to examine the state-of-the-practice in metropolitan travel forecasting.

In the final report, Metropolitan Travel Forecasting: Current Practice and Future Direction, the committee identified many recommendations to improve travel demand forecasting, including a national travel forecasting handbook to be developed and kept current.

This suggestion was taken up by the forecasting community, and this TFResource is that handbook! We hope you find it useful.


Thank you to the Transportation Research Board and to the volunteers of the ADB45 Travel Forecasting Resources committee, without whom none of this content would exist.

This website graciously funded by the USDOT-sponsored Tier-1 TOMNET University Transportation Center at Arizona State University.
