Travel Behavior Tools

Envision Tomorrow tracks many of the land use and transportation changes that drive travel behavior.  Through collaboration with Reid Ewing, one of the nation's foremost transportation reserachers, Envision Tomorrow now includes three separate tools for assessing current and future travel behavior.  Each tool differs in its methodology and scale of application:


Estimates the relationship between travel behavior and several key demographic and urban form characteristics.  Minimum area must contain regional travel and employment shed for 30 minute auto trips.

Developed by Reid Ewing and researchers at the University of Utah, this model is based on a stand-alone spreadsheet and should be used for mixed use areas less than 1 square mile.

Developed by Fehr & Peers and US EPA.  This model is housed within Envision Tomorrow's prototype builder and is appropriate for larger sites with multiple uses.  May require additional customization.
