Inquiry: Citilabs – Luke Cheng,
Tokyo Tech – Dr. Hanaoka,

Instructor: Vipul Modi - Based out of Singapore, Vipul is a key member of Citilabs support team for last 6 years and has developed travel demand and micro-simulation models for clients in the United States, Europe and Asia. He was an integral member of the Transportation Institute at University of Florida for 5 years with focus on traffic operations and research studies. Vipul obtained a master’s degree from University of Florida, Gainesville and a bachelor’s from Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), Mumbai.

Thanks to the support of Dr. Shinya Hanaoka of Tokyo Tech, Citilabs is pleased to offer this rare opportunity to learn how to do travel demand modeling using Cube in Japan. The language of the training will be English. We welcome all our existing Cube users and those who are interested in learning more about Cube both in and out of Japan to attend.

This two-day course is designed for new users of Cube. Starting from basic concepts in travel demand forecasting and traffic modeling, the class will explain how to use Cube Base and Cube Voyager to answer common questions in transportation planning and engineering. The course will teach the user how to prepare model inputs (highway, public transit networks, zonal shape files, etc.), setup a travel demand model and review model outputs.

Pre-Requisite: Attendees should have some basic knowledge of travel demand modeling

Attendees will learn:

  • Cube Base user interface components
    • Highway & Public Transport Editing
    • Cube Graphics, Data Preparation
    • Application and Scenario Manager
  • Cube Voyager programs and data types
    • The modules of Voyager
    • Scripting basics
    • Building an entire model using example scripts

I look forward to seeing many of you in Tokyo in August. If you have any question, please feel free to contact me at
