Analysis of Metra Rail Commuter Service Contraction Impact on Regional Mobility Using Integrated Multimodal Network Modeling Platform

Project: Research project

Project Details


Northwestern University Transportation Center (NUTC) proposes to provide an independent quantitative assessment, using state of the art methodologies, of Metra’s contribution to personal mobility in the context of the Chicago metropolitan highway and rail transportation network. In this process, NUTC will build upon a state of the art multimodal network modeling methodology (NU-TRANS) originally developed in conjunction with the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) to examine the impact of various hypothetical service reduction scenarios.
