The objective of this research was to develop a systematic methodology to understand overall demand, destination type choice, and route choice decisions in the aftermath of a hurricane. It will consider transportation, social and other relevant factors such as actions of agencies dealing with emergency operations. Data collected from past hurricanes will be used to estimate and calibrate the evacuation demand and behavior models. This research is focused on the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area, and will utilize available data sources in this area to conduct the proposed work.
