AN INVESTIGATION OF THE USE OF ACCESSIBILITY IN DIRECT GENERATION MODELS
The study determines the effect of characteristics of the transportation system on travel demand. The feasibility of combining trip generation and modal split into one step was investigated. Models which directly generate trips by mode were developed and calibrated using 1965 trip data for Roanoke, Virginia. In the models, number and mode of trips were related to socio-economic, land use, demographic, and modal accessibility measures. Direct generation models were developed using linear, least-squares multiple regression analysis, available trip data and explanatory variables, and simple measures of accessibility.
