Extending the Applicability of ITE Trip Generation Data Beyond General Urban and Suburban Sites

When: Oct 11, 2018 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM (ET)

For many years, ITE trip generation data has been considered only suitable for performing trip generation analysis on general urban and suburban sites, where most ITE data has been gathered. As data collected focusses on vehicle trips, its applicability for multimodal-friendly sites has been highly debated due to the possibility of inappropriate estimation of vehicle trips.

In this webinar, the presenter will discuss a new analysis technique using the latest ITE Trip Generation Data and demonstrate an online tool, OTISS Pro, to generate appropriate trips for multimodal-friendly sites.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this webinar, the participants will understand:

  1. A new methodology from ITE to convert vehicle to person trips
  2. Basic principles used in estimating total baseline site person trips
  3. Use of ITE Trip Generation Data for any location setting and estimate appropriate trips
  4. How to use OTISS Pro to quickly estimate person and vehicle trips for your study sites
