TRIP GENERATION FACTORS IN MEXICO CITY

Significant future development activity is anticipated in the high growth outlying suburban areas and in redevelopment of older urban areas of Mexico City, especially those that were hardest hit by the 1985 earthquake. City officials have been charged with planning for quality development and the mitigation of impacts resulting from the new growth. However, assessment of projected traffic impact of new developments is difficult since little detailed data exists for historic travel trends, trip generation or transit use. ITE Trip Generation factors provide only a general guide to estimating trip-making in Mexico City due to significant differences in travel characteristics from those typical of the United States from which the ITE rates are based.
