Paper Title:
Implementation of a New Travel Time Estimation Method for Demand Forecasting Models
  Abstract

This paper discusses the implementation of a new travel time estimation method in a regional demand forecasting model. The developed model considers implicitly the influence of signal timing as a function of main street and cross street traffic demands, although signal timing setting is not required as input. The application presented in this paper demonstrates that the developed model is applicable to a large network without the burden of signal timing input requirement. The results indicate that the application of the model can improve the performance of traffic assignment as part of the demand forecasting process. The model is promising to support dynamic traffic assignment (DTA) model applications in the future.
