URBAN TRAVEL PATTERNS FOR HOSPITALS, UNIVERSITIES, OFFICE BUILDINGS AND CAPITOLS

TRAVEL PATTERNS WERE STUDIED FOR HOSPITALS, COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, OFFICE BUILDINGS, AND STATE CAPITOL COMPLEXES. THE ANALYSES INCLUDE TRIP GENERATION, TRIP DISTRIBUTION, AND GENERAL TRIP CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS TRIP PURPOSE AND MODE OF TRAVEL. DATA WERE OBTAINED FROM MANY ORIGIN-AND-DESTINATION STUDIES CONDUCTED DURING RECENT YEARS FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING PROCESSES. TRIPS TO AND FROM SPECIFIC TYPES OF LAND USE WERE STUDIED. THE TRIP GENERATION CHARACTERISTICS ARE RELATED TO VARIOUS QUANTIFIABLE FACTORS FOR EACH SPECIFIC LAND USE THROUGH THE USE OF MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSES. THE REGRESSION COEFFICIENTS AND THE STANDARD ERRORS DERIVED FROM THE MULTIPLE REGRESSION COMPUTATIONS ARE PRESENTED TO INDICATE THE VARIABILITY OF THE DATA INVOLVED AND THE RANGE OF CONFIDENCE THAT MAY BE PLACED IN USING THE REGRESSION EQUATION FOR PREDICTIVE PURPOSES. THE TRAFFIC GENERATION PREDICTION EQUATIONS DERIVED FROM THE MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSES SHOULD PROVIDE THE TRANSPORTATION PLANNER AND TRAFFIC ANALYST WITH A TOOL WHEN HE MUST CONSIDER THE TRAFFIC EFFECTS WHICH WILL RESULT FROM A PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT OR EXPANSION OF AN EXISTING INSTITUTION.
