Cross-classification, disaggregate regression, and aggregate regression trip generation models and trip rates were developed for three cities. The model for each of the cities was transferred to the two cities and comparisons were made. The comparisons revealed that models calibrated on aggregate zonal data perform better than models calibrated with disaggregate household data when aggregate data are used for forecasting. However, if cross-classification models are acceptable, they can be transferred between cities if good judgment is used to select cities that are similar enough for this purpose. Recommended is the establishment of a standard procedure for data collection and trip generation analysis in selected studies of the near future so that the transferability question can be properly addressed. The emphasis should be on the development of new prototype models for application in groups of cities. (Author)
