The most reliable process for transportation model development is to start with three documents. Before commencing detailed design it is important to set out some preliminary ideas on the travel, person and household segmentations that you will use throughout the transport model, and describe any other key decisions on model scope that have already been made. This will inform the design of the data collection exercise and travel surveys. It is also appropriate to start planning the transport model estimation.
