Technical Note 8: WTSM 2013 ValidationSearch in document library
This technical note documents the validation of the Wellington Transport Strategy Model (WTSM) as part of the 2013 update of the model. The validation process ensures that the WTSM is a good representation of observed transport patterns in the base year 2013, by comparing output from the model against a range of observed criteria:
- Traffic counts and screenline volumes for light vehicles and medium/heavy vehicles;
- Light vehicle journey time surveys;
- Bus passenger ticketing information;
- Bus journey times;
- Rail count and loading profiles.
