Request for Proposals: Development of a Travel Demand Model
The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County) is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of a Travel Demand Model (TDM) for the Greater Lansing tri-county region. The TDM will evaluate a variety of transportation scenarios in the area including prediction of future travel conditions, impact of future projects on the transportation network, and identifying future transportation needs for the long-range transportation plan.
Tri-County invites the submission of proposals from qualified professional consulting firms that specialize in travel demand model forecasting, mentoring staff through trainings, thinking both critically and intuitively, and experience in developing and applying four-step travel demand models. It is imperative for stakeholders of the Greater Lansing region (including Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties and the cities of Lansing and East Lansing) to understand how forecasting trips based on data collection can make our network run smoother. Interested candidates’ submissions should include a concise statement of the consultant's approach to the project and a summary of the consultant's ability to provide the required services.
