Curious about what a change in gas prices is likely to do with vehicle miles traveled (VMT) in the future? What if we also experience a slower rate of economic growth?
And who knows whether active modes of transportation like bicycling or walking will increase in the near future? Any combination of these changes could have an effect on how much people would travel.
TrendLab+ allows you to compose scenarios for 16 factors related to trends, including job market health, fuel prices, social networking, autonomous cars, and vehicle ownership. You can then instantly see the effects on VMT per capita (based on public research) conducted for each factor, which enables a range of scenario testing to inform decisions about future transportation investments.
