TRANSFERABILITY OF TRIP GENERATION EQUATIONS BETWEEN QUEENSLAND PROVINCIAL CITIES. PAPER PRESENTED AT THE AUSTRALASIAN TRANSPORT RESEARCH FORUM; PART 2

Queensland has many provincial cities with high growth rates for which there is a need to provide regularly updated strategic transport planning. Due to the number and frequency of such planning studies, it is desirable to minimise the resource requirements of each study. The transferable nature of trip generation equations used in strategic transport planning studies is investigated. Trip attraction and trip production equations for each of six trip purposes from two recent strategic studies are compared. Conclusions are drawn as to their compatibility and any factors to be considered in the transferring of these equations to other provincial cities. The successful use of transferred equations in two other studies is detailed along with a discussion on the applicability of using transferred equations. (Author/TRRL)
