The paper outlines a method for forecasting car ownership at the regional level. Forecasts can serve as an input to transportation models which may help in the preparation of transportation plans. In Britain, due to reorganization of the government structure, local authorities are required to prepare transportation policies and plans for their region. The paper suggests that a simple method of car ownership forecasting would be a very useful tool for regional authorities.
