Dynamic trip generation for a medium-sized urban community Anderson, Michael D ; Malave, Dilip N

By: Contributor(s): Publication details: Transportation Research Record, 2003Description: nr 1858, s. 118-23Subject(s): Bibl.nr: VTI P8169:2003 Ref ; VTI P8167Location: Abstract: Traditional transportation modeling activities in medium-sized urban communities follow the four-step planning process: trip generation, trip distribution, mode split, and traffic assignment. These models forecast daily traffic volumes on major roadways of the communities to support infrastructure investment decisions. Recently, researchers have focused on dynamic traffic-assignment models, which provide time as a measure in the trip-modeling process, to support incident management and intelligent transportation system-based decisions. As a methodology to support the dynamic traffic-assignment models, development of a dynamic trip-generation model for a medium-sized urban community is considered. An overview of the need for dynamic trip-generation data is presented, and a methodology and a data-collection effort to develop a dynamic trip-generation model are discussed. Results are included of a validation study performed on the model. It is concluded that the models developed in the effort can provide dynamic trip-generation data and represent a first step toward making the dynamic transportation model a viable resource.
