Travel Behavior & Forecasting

Forecasting future travel demand is a crucial step in virtually every transportation project, providing the foundation for the detailed operational analysis and design that follows. Fehr & Peers is a leader in the development and application of models used to predict demand for all travel modes. We use the latest technology to efficiently develop and update models, and apply innovative techniques that allow travel demand models to capture the interactions between neighborhood-scale land use characteristics and travel patterns. We bring to modeling a deep understanding of not only the latest academic research and statistical analysis techniques, but also the real-world needs of the practicing planner.
