About the report:

To support Virginia's initiatives to design a multimodal transportation plan for the year 2025, this report summarizes how transportation demand is expected to change over the next two decades. Four broad areas affecting transportation demand are explored: socioeconomic changes, public policy changes, freight trends, and changes in how the transportation network is used. Accordingly, socioeconomic, policy, and freight influences on travel demand and resultant measures of freight and passenger use are discussed here.
