This paper examines the extent to which results from transport planning research have been transferred into practice. It is concluded that the current rate of transfer is low. Possible reasons for the low transference rates are examined and suggestions made on how the situation may be improved. The paper focuses on research and practice into travel-forecasting methods in the United States. However, it is argued that the research/practice interface pertaining to travel forecasting methods is not too different from other areas of transport planning and the situation existent in the United States tends to only differ in degree from that in Western Europe and Australia.
