    1. Incorporating Uncertainty Analysis into Forecasting Group Discussion AMPO Travel Modeling Work Group Chicago, Illinois October 1, 2009

    2. Why Bother? A new way of thinking about forecasting Insights, not just model mechanics Range of possible outcomes Another approach for quality control checks Information for decision makers Upper/lower bound, most likely Honesty in presentation of forecasts Predicted-versus-actual outcomes AMPO Travel Modeling Work Group Meeting 2

    3. Example: Forecast Build-up • Series of forecasts for: • Today • Plus future transit network • Plus new transit behaviors • Plus future trip tables • Plus future highway congestion • Plus future parking costs • Plus alternative land use (?) Choice riders Park/ride etc. Guideway effects AMPO Travel Modeling Work Group Meeting

    4. Example: Honolulu Rail Study Notes: - Transit demand ’05a is the 2005 on-board survey. - Bus speeds ’05+ are based on highway speeds from the assignment of 2005 person trips onto the 2030 highway network. - Highway speeds ’30- are from the assignment of 2030 person trips onto the 2005 highway network.

    6. Discussion Points Model documentation Assessment of model plausibility What it does/does not know well Markets, modes, behaviors Results of forecast tests Consistency with similar projects Key drivers of the forecasts Demographic/network inputs Alternative assumptions AMPO Travel Modeling Work Group Meeting 6
