Abstract

The "Trip Generation Handbook" has two primary purposes: to provide instruction and guidance in the proper use of data presented in "Trip Generation" and to provide information on supplemental issues of importance in estimating trip generation for development sites. Throughout the Handbook, the reader is provided with recommended step-by-step procedures and worksheets, sample problems that demonstrate these guidelines using "Trip Generation" data, flow charts and diagrams that illustrate key concepts, and sample data-collection forms.
