Here are the projected Daily Station “Braidings” [sic] in the 2009 Business Plan:
Do these computer-model numbers make any sense?
Palmdale (population: 150k) would see almost as many boardings as Los Angeles (population: 3.8 million).
Anaheim (i.e. Disneyland) is projected to have travel demand as great as San Francisco (i.e. terminus for most Bay Area travelers).
Computer models are only as good as the assumptions and data fed into them. Garbage in, garbage out.
