Abstract

This study represents the trip attraction rates of the shopping centers in Jagnath area in Rajkot city. A total of ten shopping centers were surveyed, for which the number of people and vehicles entering and leaving the shopping center in every fifteen minutes interval is measured. Based on the surveyed data and photographs, the model relates the trip attraction of the shopping center as a function of physical features of shopping center, e.g. total parking space, total floor area and the number of stores in the shopping center. These models are useful for estimating the traffic volume to/from a new shopping center which, is being planned and to assess the traffic impact of the shopping center on the geometric design of roadways in the surrounding area. This model can serve as an alternative to the ITE trip generation manual (1997).
