What can you do with Emme?
Travel demand forecasting

Implement virtually any zonal-aggregate travel demand model with any feedback structure, trip generation and distribution choice models. Apply trip chaining, capture multimodal accessibility and power leading activity-based and land-use models.

Transit Planning

Evaluate changes to transit routes, frequency, quality of service, transit service competition or fare integration, crowding on transit vehicles and at stations, walkability/accessibilty, park-and-ride, kiss-and-ride, transit system design and transit service planning with fare card data.

Traffic Planning

Evaluate road network expansion and management schemes, toll schemes and toll revenue forecasts, accessibility studies, junction delay, traffic demand management, critical infrastructure, freight and good movements, and bicycle traffic.

Economic, emissions and environmental analyses

Analyze vehicle cold starts, operating conditions, and other key data for emissions. Evaluate transit service quality by demographics, compare demand management techniques, perform investment-grade infrastructure and toll evaluation or forecast benefits to support cost/benefit or other project-ranking schemes.

Pedestrians, bikes, and active transport

High-performance routing and assignment on all-streets networks to support topographic and urban form in route choice for non-motorized travel, true multimodal routing for walk access to and between transit services, and stochastic route choice models to forecast changes and prioritize infrastructure. Use results to plan safety, first-mile/last-mile accessibility, bike facilities and more.
