What's happening?

Development of the new Perth Transport Model has commenced.

The Perth Transport Model (PTM) project is to implement a new Perth Transport Model that will be used for all transport modelling across the Department of Transport, Main Roads and the Public Transport Authority. The PTM will incorporate tour-based modelling for forecasting person travel and commercial vehicle travel.

A transport model is a tool for understanding and assessing the likely impacts of changes in the drivers of transport, such as transport supply, demographics or land use. In this context, transport modelling can assist with decision-making about the future development and management of urban transport and land use systems.

Currently, there are two transport models used by the Transport Portfolio Ė STEM managed by Department of Transport, and ROM24 managed by Main Roads.
