John Douglas Hunt


Ph.D., P.Eng.
Doug is an internationally recognized and widely published expert in land use and transport interaction modeling. He has about 15 years of experience in transportation demand modeling and land use transport interaction modeling in Europe, the United States and Canada. He has assisted in the successful development of multimodal transportation models or land use and transportation interaction models for various cities, including: London, Edinburgh, Dortmund, Naples, Dublin, San Diego, Sacramento, Phoenix, Edmonton and Calgary. He was a special modeling advisor to Union Railways, the British Rail subsidiary developing the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, for 4 years. He has also worked on regional transportation and land use models for Oregon, Sweden, Southeast England and Central Chile. His special expertise is in the design and calibration of these models, developing them so that they can be used to examine policy alternatives involving such things as infrastructure development, alterations in land use regulations, changes in transportation conditions (including operations, tariffs and user costs) and new economic and fiscal arrangements. His experience in both private consulting and university teaching and research make him a powerful communicator with a broad understanding of both the technical issues and the practical constraints involved in real-world modeling work. Doug is a professor of Transportation Engineering at the University of Calgary and president of Hunt Analytics Incorporated.
