CENTRAL AREAS ACCESS STUDY, TECHNICAL REPORT I: DEVELOPMENT OF FLOOR SPACE FILES FOR TRIP GENERATION

The Access Study is designed to assess the impacts of major transit and roadway improvements on the environment and travel behavior in 327 micro-area analysis zones of the 10.5 square mile Central Area of Chicago for three and ten year horizon forecasts of land use. This technical report documents the sources of, and the procedures used to develop floor space and dwelling unit data for trip generation. The data base is an inventory of all buildings in the Central Area coded by use. A 1975 file was prepared, and backdated to 1970 to relate to region-wide 1970 Home Interview travel data. Forecasts were prepared for 1978 and 1985. Employment and other data not used are reviewed. Tables of floor space and dwelling units, and the trip generation process are not presented. /Author/
