Trip Generation Handbook, Second Edition: An ITE Recommended Practice

This handbook has two purposes. The first one is to provide instruction and guidance in the proper use of data presented in Trip Generation, 7th Edition. The second is to provide additional information and data on supplemental issues of importance in estimating trip generation for development sites. Chapter 2 provides guidance in the selection of the appropriate independent variable and time period for estimating trips generated by a development site. Chapter 3 presents recommended methodology for estimating trip generation for a land use for which data are provided in Trip Generation, 7th Edition. Chapter 4 offers guidelines for the proper execution of a local trip generation study, for the validation of Trip Generation, 7th Edition data for local use, or for the establishment of new local trip generation rates. Chapter 5 explains the concepts of pass-by, primary and diverted linked trips and their importance in estimating trips at a site's driveway(s); presents a database on pass-by trips compiled by the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE); proposes a recommended methodology for interpreting and applying the pass-by data; and provides instructions on how to conduct a pass-by survey (with sample size requirements, data requirements and a sample survey instrument). Chapter 6 presents an approach for estimating trips generated by a proposed site with an unknown mix of land uses or size of development. Chapter 7 includes a definition of multi-use developments and presents a method for estimating internal capture rates (and the resultant reduction in external trips) within a multi-use development.
