The Multimodal travel demand model Halle (Saale) represents the travel behaviour in the City Halle and its surrounding area. In addition to motor traffic and public transport, the multimodal travel demand model considers pedestrian and cycle traffic as well as motor vehicle fellow passengers. Extending the research area to the neighbouring counties assures urban-rural relationships being treated with particular focus on traffic planning.

Input parameters for the travel demand model are:

The model allows a realistic representation of the travel demand and its variability throughout the day. Besides the main transport network, the network model includes the complete secondary transport network. The individual turn relationships at the interchanges are modelled dependent on the traffic volume, resistances at traffic light systems were implemented by considering all signal time plans.

The calculation of the traffic forecast is based on a small-scale population forecast which the future distribution of the behaviourally homogeneous groups is derived from.
