The Ørestad Transport Model (OTM) is used to forecast demand for passenger and freight transport across the Greater Copenhagen area. This report describes work to extend the OTM passenger demand models to predict the choice of time of travel for car drivers. The work has been undertaken so that the OTM model can be used to assess congestion charging policies where the charge varies according to the time of day. The report is technical in nature, describing how time period alternatives have been defined for the modelling, the results of the model development for each of the seven travel purposes represented in the model, and the results of the model validation.
