**Transportation planning is one the most important problems of urban management systems.
**

Meanwhile, modeling trip flows between metropolitan zones is vital to a successful transportation

planning. Due to importance of the problem, different models have been developed in recent years but

because of the complex nature of the problem that deals with human behavior and existence of

different independent variables that affect number of trips, it is always hard to develop a model with

acceptable forecasting error that is computationally efficient. In this paper a three phases fuzzy

inference system (FIS) proposed to map social and demographic variables to total number of trips

between origin-destination (OD), pairs. Fuzzy rule bases in the model are in fact the exploration of

transportation experts’ subjective patterns.

Key words: Transportation planning, trip forecasting, fuzzy inference system, fuzzy rule base.
