Abstract: An Activity-based model is the one that generally replaces the conventional trip-based model, which is usually represented to as the four-step model. With the variations in the transportation system attributes and changes in socio-demographics of the individuals, the transportation planners and engineers’ need to have the ability to estimate the variations in transportation demand so as to make a well-versed transportation infrastructure planning decision possible. Activity-based models are used for this purpose; these models are used to forecast travel characteristics and usage of transport services under different socio-economic scenarios. An activity-based travel pattern model has been developed for the individuals of the study area. This activity-travel pattern model will take different input parameters such as various land-use, socio-demographic, activity system, and transportation level-of-service attributes. Thus it will provide the activity-travel pattern of each individual in the study area as the output, within the continuous time domain.
