TREDPLAN-Regions: Advancing DOT and MPO Abilities to Plan for Future Change

TREDPLAN-RegionsTM - Gives an analyst a flexible way of examining how regional and state growth and transportation needs will be affected by future changes in the economy, technology, climate and trade.


What can TREDPLANTM do for DOTs and MPOs?

  • For long-range planning, see how future economic shifts will affect your state's or region's economy, commuting, and freight flows.
  • For prioritization, assess future change in your state's or region's reliance on connections to markets, gateways, and affected facilities. 
  • For resilience planning, identify economic risks and consequences of possible future scenarios.
  • For inter-agency coordination, identify way that transportation investments can support regional economic development goals.

TREDPLAN Elements 

Areas Covered - TREDPLAN scenarios are generated for all counties in the US. Customers specify their area of interest within the US, which may be a state, a county, multi-state region or multi-county region. TREDPLAN is configured to identify competing or peer areas elsewhere within the US, and then assess the effect of future scenarios on the area of interest relative to competing or peer areas.


Scenarios. Use our preset scenarios to 2050, or we can set it up with customer-specified scenarios:

  • Transport fuel and operating costs
Climate Change Scenarios
  • Changes in heating and cooling degree-days

Outcomes. TREDPLAN can graphically and visually portray effects of alternative future scenarios on:

  • Change in flows by origin/destination and mode
  • Change in flows by value and tonnage
  • Change in flows by TEUs, truckloads
  • Change in flows by origin/destination
  • Terminals - airports, marine ports, intermodal rail
  • Corridors - highway, rail
  • Value, tons, truckloads, by origin-destination
Competitiveness and Operating Costs:
  • Transportation, labor and energy costs
