Specifications include, but are not limited to:The City of San Luis Obispo is requesting proposals for providing on-call traffic modeling services and an update of its TransCAD multimodal travel demand forecasting model. The goal of this update is to prepare a general update of the traffic model to support transportation impact studies and preparation for upcoming AB1600 studies. The total budget for this scope of work is $180,000 and its anticipated that the model update would be completed within 6 months. Current model Transcad files and documentation can be downloaded at the following link. Background: The current TransCAD traffic model was developed by LSA Associates and Cambridge Systematics in November of 2010 with 2008 as the base year and 2035 as the forecast year. Since then there have been a number of updates to the San Luis Obispo county traffic model, city specific plans, and in 2014 the Citys General Plan was updated. Due to the upcoming traffic impact fee program updates its the Citys desire to conduct a complete update of the Citys TransCAD traffic model to reflect an updated base year and recalibrated forecast year. The City will be conducting an AB1600 study in 2016/17 to update its transportation impact fee programs. This study will be conducted under a separate contract. However its the Citys desire to retain the consultant team that performs this traffic model update to provide traffic modeling services in support of that fee study. Scope of Services: The consultant(s) selected will be responsible to perform all necessary work to deliver an updated calibrated and validated 2016 base year and 2035 forecast year multimodal traffic model, utilizing the most current version of TransCad software, that is consistent with all applicable Federal, State, and local travel forecasting guidelines. The update shall retain all of the intended functionality of the current model in addition to new functionality as described below. The outline below is meant to highlight the priority tasks, but not be an all-inclusive list of every task needed to achieve the work product. Assist staff in developing a Citywide Transportation Survey to support the traffic model update. The City will be responsible for distribution and capture of the survey data, the consultant team will be responsible for developing the survey, analyzing the data, and incorporating the results into the traffic model. Perform network updates & refinement for base and forecast years. In addition assess and implement, if feasible, bikeway network in order to support segment and class I trail bike volume forecasts within the City SOI
