This paper describes the application of intercity travel demand models and preparation of ridership and revenue forecasts for the Ontario/Quebec Rapid Train Task Force in 1990. The development of these travel demand models is described by the authors in a separate paper. The model system, including total travel volume and modal share models, was applied using a `pivot point' approach to take account of special characteristics of each geographic market. Forecasts were made for three primary scenarios representing a range of future rail service options in the corridor.
