A generalized-synthesis approach for planning transportation facilities in small and medium-sized cities in presented in this paper. The object of this synthesis approach was to determine whether major travel parameters are independent of city size. Trip purpose distribution was found to be independent of city size. Distributions of 22.3 percent home-based work, 48.3 percent home-based other, and 29.4 percent non-home-based trips were used for synthesis application. Total trip-generation equations were developed by using both dwelling units and motor vehicles, and then a step-down procedure was applied. These generalized generation study-area equations were then evaluated against specific study-area equations and other generalized equations.
