TEMPro (Trip End Model Presentation Program)
Lists all DfT guidance about using and downloading TEMPro software.
The National Trip End Model (NTEM) forecasts and the TEMPro (Trip End Model Presentation Program) software are used for transport modelling and planning purposes.
National Trip End Model (NTEM) forecasts
The NTEM data set is created from a series of models developed and run by DfT’s Transport Appraisal and Strategic Modelling division. The forecasts are:
- households by car ownership
- trip ends
- simple traffic growth factors, based on data from the National Transport Model (NTM)
NTEM trip ends, by mode, are based on average rates over a wide area, and mode shares are a derivation from the 2011 National Travel Survey. NTEM does not take into account:
- the accessibility of each zone by each transport mode
- changes in the cost of travel by each mode
Modal forecasts should be prepared from appropriately specified mode choice models. Modal trip ends may form a starting point in modelling, but users must satisfy themselves that they are suitable for individual application. Forecasts such as NTEM data sets are always subject to uncertainty. Guidance on creating modal forecasts is available.
Trip End Model Presentation Program (TEMPro) software
Current version of the data set is NTEM 7.0 which is used in conjunction with TEMPro 7.0.
Since the release of NTEM 7.0, some localised issues have been identified with the data set. A programme of work to review and update the dataset is ongoing with estimated publication date of February 2017.
In advance of this update an interim dataset for Wales (NTEMv7.1 Interim for Wales) has been made available which incorporates revised assumptions on housing growth. These revised assumptions will be carried forward into the full update we intend to publish in February. The February update will also incorporate further refinements which were not possible to include in the interim dataset.
Once the work is completed all national datasets will be released as a single version. Further information can be found in the TEMPro release notes.
Versions 7.0 and 7.1 interim for Wales of the NTEM dataset can be used in conjunction with the version 7.1 of the TEMPro 7.0 software. If updating to 7.0 or above refer to the TEMPro release notes. Both data and software are freely available.
Earlier versions of NTEM data sets and TEMPro software are available on request, however earlier versions are no longer supported.
The department can be contacted for further queries on the update programme.
Users of NTEM data and TEMPro software are advised to register for updates. To register, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, organisation, email address and telephone number with “ADD” in the subject line.
