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.
