CALL FOR EVIDENCE
UNDERSTANDING CHANGING TRAVEL DEMAND [download .pdf]
DEADLINE: Friday 17th February 2017
The Commission will work through a series of six events which pull together key evidence and debate about our understanding of demand and what this means for the way in which we plan for transport. Each of the evidence sessions is underpinned by research briefings and a public call for evidence. Submissions of up to six pages are invited addressing the following topics:
- Which aspects of travel demand have changed in ways which have not been anticipated by traditional forecasting approaches in the past twenty years?
- How do these changes relate to the way in which the activities that we participate in have changed? What other factors might explain change?
- How do these vary spatially? Are there distinctions between central, suburban and rural areas and are there differences between cities?
- How do they vary over time? Are there particular times in the week where demand has changed or seasonal variations which have emerged?
- What methods can be used to incorporate greater uncertainty in demand? Have they been deployed and to what effect?
