The Forecasting and Trends Office announces a major update to the Florida Statewide Model. This new base-year 2015 model, with a horizon year of 2045, replaces the 2010/2040 model last updated in 2016. Version 7.0 contains significant improvements including a destination choice model, long-distance mode choice/short-distance mode factoring, a firm-evolution component in FreightSIM, and a feedback loop in the model flow. In addition, we updated trip production rates, improved the tolling methodology, and streamlined trip assignment reporting.
The new Florida Statewide Model is available for download at the Florida transportation modeling website: https://www.fsutmsonline.net/index.php?/model_pages/modDS1/index/
