Traffic Forecasts & Modeling Services


Effective October 2, 2017, the RTC Planning Department will implement a fee for requests for traffic modeling services at a rate of $100 per hour (to be invoiced in quarter-hour increments).

The modeling fee will apply to detailed requests that would require staff time to perform an analysis. Examples of these requests might include, but are not limited to: an analysis of future traffic volumes as a result of a proposed development, packaging of trip distribution (origin-destination) data for specified areas, scenario planning, and GIS analysis/mapping requests.

Requesting parties will be invoiced after all work is performed and any deliverables are received for requests involving these types of services. Accepted payment methods include check or EFT transfer. RTC cannot accept payment by credit card. Please contact the Planning Department at 775-348-0480 for more information.
