A model for predicting trip tables for small areas based on the access and land development travel function is described along with the results of an initial test of the model. The model provides trip tables required for subregional analyses without the need for windowing into a regional data set. The model requires minimum-path friction skim trees and trip-end data for the small area as input. Trip-end data can be derived from ground counts on links that enter the small area or from the results of an assignment of a regional trip table. Test results from a small area in Hudson County, New Jersey, suggest the validity of the model. The need for further refinements to the model is discussed in the paper. (Authors)
