IMPACT OF SUBURBAN EMPLOYEE TRIP CHAINING ON DEMAND MANAGEMENT. TRANSPORTATION ENGINEERING IN A NEW ERA. ISSUE PAPERS FOR THE ITE 1992 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE, MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA

Trip chaining travel behavior was examined as part of a larger study of employee commute habits and perceptions in Brentwood, Tennessee. Aspects of trip chaining included why, to what extent, and for what reasons employees need their vehicles before, during, and after work. The study identified the frequency of chained trips, and the type of personal business activities or stopping that accompanies the morning and evening trip. Policy implications were identified and methods for dealing with the problem by adjusting land use relationships and providing on-site services are suggested. The study helps to determine the mix of services and land uses near worksites that support shared ride objectives.
