Travel demand is the result of individuals and firms making both locational and travel decisions. Those travel decisions include whether, where, and when to travel, what mode to use, and what route to take. Because the experiences of the transportation system can vary depending on the time of day and patterns in origin and destination, the system is well suited to interventions that use existing capacity more efficiently.
