Abstract

Transportation planning involves a four step planning process in which trip generation plays a vital role. The most common method of analyzing trips generated is to utilize a travel demand model that considers socio economic factors based on anticipated land use, household and employment changes. This project estimates the trip generations and choice of transport modes in the study area. The current travel trends are analyzed by conducting Home Interview Survey in the study area. Numbers of trips made in the study area in terms of trip purpose, mode of travel, travel time were analyzed. Based on these data, statistical models were developed by considering population, employment, socio economic characteristics. For the present population and employment, the travel characteristics are estimated from the travel demand model.
