The second presentation is titled “Introduction to the Southeast Florida Regional STOPS Model”, and will be presented by Ashutosh Kumar of Connetics Transportation Group. FDOT District 4 is making available a regional STOPS model covering Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties for transit ridership forecasting for upcoming corridor studies. This model supplements the forecasting needs of the region and also complements Southeast Regional Planning Model (SERPM), which in some aspects, is not well informed about the transit rider travel patterns to be reliably used for project-level ridership forecasting. The presentation will introduce the model’s interface, present regional calibration results and identify additional tasks/updates users may have to perform for applying the model for a specific corridor.
The third presentation is titled “Development of 2045 ABM Zonal Data Projections for the SIS Unfunded Needs Study”, and will be presented by Mike Brown of Transportation Planning Services, Inc. The purpose of the Strategic Investment System (SIS) 2045 Multi-Modal Unfunded Needs Plan is to identify the unfunded major transportation capacity improvements needed for a statewide network of high priority transportation facilities most critical for statewide and interregional travel. To identify projects not currently funded and not included in the Department's Adopted Work Program or the MPOs Long Range Cost Feasible Plans. To conduct a regional needs assessment to 2045 using the SERPM and TCRPM ABM models to identify the unfunded major transportation capacity improvements needed for designated and proposed SIS facilities and to provide 2045 socioeconomic data to Central Office for running the statewide model on the SIS network. For this project 2045 zonal data was generated for both the SERPM7 and the TCRPM models. Two alternatives were developed based upon the latest BEBR 2045 population projections and an extrapolation of the 2040 population trend used in the previous LRTPs, building up from the 2040 Plus data to create the 2045 zonal data using the best available local data to identify 2040-2045 growth at the TAZ and MAZ level. The presentation will highlight those 2045 zonal data projections and describe how those projections were developed.
By attending the Users Group meeting, participants will learn the new methodologies of analyzing multimodal transportation
