Tennessee Model Users Group (TNMUG)
At the February 26 meeting, Jaehoon Kim announced he is leaving TDOT in March 2020. Dr. Jerry Everett awarded Mr. Kim a certificate of appreciation for his work with TNMUG over the past three years.
The Tennessee Travel Demand User’s Group forum was established in January 2004 to exchange information about travel demand modeling and forecasting. The goal of the organization is to improve modeling and forecasting capabilities within the state.
The group is a collaboration between the universities, TDOT, FHWA, MPOs, consultants, and other interested parties. The modeling group
- promotes standard statewide guidelines and validation standards,
- helps coordinate systematic data collection and processing,
- organizes and promotes staff member training, and
- conducts research on selected areas of interest to the group.
The members gather three or four times per year for one-day meetings that include extensive technical programs.
TNMUG’s objective is to support travel demand modeling research and practices that can be undertaken in a comprehensive and coordinated fashion, resulting in advancing the state of modeling application in Tennessee.
