1 what does remi transight do
1) What Does REMI TranSight Do?

TranSight predicts the “Total Economic” and “Demographic Effects” of transportation improvements such as:

  • Major Economic Component
  • Industry Sectors
  • Job Type
  • Disposable Income
  • Age, Sex and Race

2 what does the user need to provide
2) What Does the User Need to Provide?

Project-Specific Information(Note: TranSight uses output from Tranplan, TransCAD or other travel demand models)

All Other Economic and Demographic Data are Built into the TranSight Model – Specific To The Defined Region (such as Mississippi Development Districts – as single counties or groups of counties)

project specific information
Project-Specific Information
  • Estimates from Tranplan or other travel demand model (e.g. VMT and VHT)
  • Construction expenditures
  • Funding source information (federal, state, local percentages)
  • Optional: adjust REMI default data

4 what are the uses of the output
4) What Are the Uses of the Output?
  • Ranking the most important projects
  • Informing decision-makers and the public
  • Showing how jobs and incomes depend on transportation
5 what makes transight unique
5) What Makes TranSight® Unique?
  • TranSight is the ONLY widely available model to show the total economic and demographic effects of transportation projects
  • What are the alternatives?
  • Simple Input-Output Model Only shows construction and maintenance impacts, and ignores dynamic effects over time
advantages of transight
Advantages of TranSight®
  • Incorporates General Equilibrium Theory, Econometrics, Input-Output Analysis, and the New Economic Geography in a dynamic consistent system
  • REMI has over 20 years of experience with regional policy analysis and modeling, currently supporting over 100 installations, each with multiple uses
  • Professional articles about all key elements of the model have been peer reviewed in leading international and regional economic journals
  • Custom data for the region being modeled

REMI TranSight®

First and foremost, REMI TranSight integrates REMI Policy Insight®—the world’s leading economic and fiscal policy analysis and simulation model—with the transport planning and travel demand models used most often by government and private sector planners.

And because REMI Policy Insight® embodies the latest research advances in economic geography, REMI TranSight can show transportation planners and policy makers the total economic effects of new investments in highways, transit, airport capacity, and other transportation infrastructure.

In particular, REMI TranSight can quantify the unique contribution transportation investments make toward creating and expanding industry clusters, some of the main drivers in diversifying and sustaining regional economic development.

example goethals bridge
Example: Goethals Bridge
  • Replacement of the 78-year-old Goethals Bridge with new 6-lane bridge.
  • Assume 34% increase in accessibility to traffic for the bridge.
  • What is the effect on the economies of New York and New Jersey?
why remi transight
Why REMI TranSight®?
  • Integrating transportation with economic simulation models requires a sound theoretical basis.
  • REMI models are structurally complete, and built upon widely accepted economic theory published in rigorously referred academic journal articles.
  • Yet the economic theory behind REMI TranSight is accessible to any thoughtful person.
