ANALTERNATIVE APPROACH FOR ESTIMATING THE HOME BASED TRIP PRODUCTIONS IN URBAN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING

Trip generation is one of the important stages within the framework of conventional urban transportation planning package. Zonal Regression method and household regression method are the most commonly recommended procedures for estimating the future trips. Notable drawbacks in both these methods have been spotted out, specially in the adoption of mechanistic rather than a logical approach. Individual is the basic decision-making unit and the model should incorporate his/her characteristics. After studying the socio-economic conditions prevailing in India and their implications on travel demand, an Individual Regression model has been formulated. The population of the study area has to be disaggregated into a set of groups based on individual's travel traits and characteristics before the models could be developed for each of the groups separately. To investigate the capability of the proposed method, full scale Home Interview survey was conducted in Roorkee town. The experiment was so designed as to assist in calibration of models and in verification of their performances. The data were used in developing the Individual models, as also Zonal and Household models. The tests have revealed that the proposed hypothesis has produced satisfactory results, in relation to other methods.
