NYBPM: Model Components

Highway Network

Highway Network Map

The highway network represents the linkages and characteristics of the street and highway system in order to support estimation of traffic volumes, traffic speeds, and vehicle travel times on individual links of the system plus zone to zone travel times.

The NYBPM model includes: 8 million households, 25 million paired journeys, 8 trip purposes, 4 time periods, 11 travel modes, and 4,643 times 4,643 multi-class trip tables. The 2010 Base Year highway network consists of 79,545 links representing 21,000 miles of roadways.

Transit Network
