DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS OF ANALYSIS FOR PLANNING TRANSIT SYSTEM COMPONENTS IN AND AROUND MAJOR ACTIVITY CENTERS. PART 1: TRIP CHAINING, THE BEHAVIORAL BASIS FOR THE DESIGN OF CICULATION SYSTEMS FOR MAJOR ACTIVITY CENTERS

Major activity centers (MACs) in the major metropolitan areas have grown rapidly during the past two decades and are playing an increasingly important role in the functioning of the metropolis. However, most are plagued with heavy traffic congestion which often starts early and continues throughout the day. The purpose of this part of the research project is to increase the understanding of the new realities of urban travel behavior. In particular, the analysis focuses on the nature of trip chaining which is related to what has also been termed multipurpose trips.
