Transit agencies in Florida often do not have the resources and staff available to implement large-scale travel demand modeling systems or collect and assemble the elaborate databases needed to support such systems. As a result, the Public Transit Office of the Florida Department of Transportation has been spearheading the development of transit demand forecasting models and transit systems planning tools for a wide variety of applications as part of its broader Transit Model Improvement Program. The culminating effort of this program is the Transit Boardings Estimation and Simulation Tool (T-BEST Arc). T-BEST Arc is an ArcGIS software-based program that provides comprehensive transit analysis and ridership forecasting. It is also capable of simulating travel demand at the individual stop-level while accounting for network connectivity, spatial and temporal accessibility, time-of-day variations, and route/stop competition and complementarity.
