Predicting Transportation Outcomes for LEED Projects

In this paper, models of mode choice and average trip length for 239 mixed use developments were estimated. These models were then applied to twelve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) pilot projects. The pilot projects aimed to predict approximate vehicle miles of travel (VMT) per person trip. LEED-ND values were compared to regional average values from the National Household Travel Survey. Findings indicated the VMT per trip for LEED-ND projects ranged from 24 to 60% of the respective regional averages. The highest alternative mode share and lowest private vehicle trip lengths were attributed to the most urban and centrally located projects.
