18 Conclusions The needs of MPOs and DOTs may differ when they address the uncertainties posed by future CAV deployment and use. For instance, an MPO or DOT in a high-growth area, with signifi- cant congestion and investment needs, may adopt an aggressive approach to scenario planning and specifically wish to include AV, CV, and other high-impact technological developments in the long-range plan for the region. Another MPO or DOT may not have growth issues, so the focus of the long-range plan may instead be on economic development and quality-of-life improvements for citizens. In such a region, the impacts of AVs and CVs could be addressed in an incremental fashion by using only data-supported modeling rather than scenario-based methods. The planning approach that might be chosen has an impact on the type of modeling that is appropriate. An MPO or DOT may decide, as a matter of planning policy, to adopt a range of strategies that best fits the long-range requirements a region is addressing. While the approach to development of methods may differ between regions and states, all agencies have in common the need to develop new planning and modeling processes that include CAVs in the transportation environment.

TRB's National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 896: Updating Regional Transportation Planning and Modeling Tools to Address Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles, Volume 1: Executive Summary summarizes guidelines to help agencies update their modeling and forecasting tools to address expected impacts of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) on transportation supply, road capacity, and travel demand components.

Under requirements for long-range transportation planning, state departments of transportation and regional metropolitan planning organizations are required to have a multimodal transportation plan with a minimum time horizon of 20 years.

Because manufacturers and shared fleet operators suggest that CAVs will be present on the highway system in significant numbers well before 2038, the planning community will require procedures and methods to address the potential positive and negative direct and indirect outcomes from their deployment.

Volume 1 conveys the key findings of NCHRP Research Report 896: Updating Regional Transportation Planning and Modeling Tools to Address Impacts of Connected and Automated Vehicles, Volume 2: Guidance. Volume 2 explores ways to develop new planning and modeling processes that include CAVs in the transportation environment.

The research report is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation that can be adapted for presentations to agency decision makers.
