  Enroll in Course

Registration fee includes software download and training materials.

This course is designed for planners/modelers with limited exposure to the Cube software. It is particularly beneficial for transportation professionals who need to analyze results in existing Cube models, or to be able to manipulate and run different tests and scenarios. Senior-level managers needing an overview of software and capabilities could also benefit from attendance.


  • The course will demonstrate Cube components in detail, (catalogs, applications, modules, programs, inputs/outputs) to provide attendees with a complete understanding of the software interface and of the components defining a Cube model.
  • The course will cover methodology to make edits to input multimodal networks, and to simulate and run scenarios. Results from the different scenarios will be analyzed and compared. Visualization of outputs will be explored, together with the generation of summary tables and reporting.
  • After the course, attendees will be able to understand the structure of an existing Cube model, identify the main components, examine and manipulate inputs and outputs, run scenarios and analyze results. Users will be able to leverage the powerful capability of Cube as a Cube Model Applier.



Software needs:

Upon successful registration and payment, attendees will find links to download software for use on personal or work computer. (Need an invoice generated for this expense? Please contact Katie Brinson at [email protected].)
