Kocaeli Transportation Master Plan studies started in 2010 and was completed in 2012. The need to revise the Kocaeli Transportation Master Plan, which was prepared with the target of the year 2025, came to the fore with the important changes in the Zoning Plans and the determination of the projected projection target year as 2035. In this context, the KUAP transportation model of 2010 was used and the transportation model was calibrated for 2014 with the new field studies. Thus, the Kocaeli Transportation Master Plan study was prepared, taking into account the 2035 target year for the re-evaluation and development of the Transportation Master Plan decisions.
In order to determine the travel forecasts to be created for the KUAP target year (2035), target and interim year estimates of population, employment, labor force, number of students, income, automobile ownership, which will be inputs to the four-stage transportation demand forecasting model, were made. In order to meet the transportation demands expected in the target year, alternative solutions have been developed within the framework of the public transportation-oriented development approach.
