Travel Modeling

The DRCOG travel model, known as Focus, helps local officials, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the  Regional Transportation District evaluate transportation improvements. It also provides data for tailpipe emission modeling to ensure the region conforms to federal air quality regulations.  Model forecasts provide data on roadway users, transit riders, and travel patterns across the region.  

Focus is an activity-based travel model for the Denver region developed by DRCOG in conjunction with Cambridge Systematics, Mark Bradley, and John Bowman.  The model's forecasts are based on a wide variety of data about the region's people, businesses, transportation systems, and development patterns.
