Regression Analysis for Transport Trip Generation Evaluation

Nadezda Zenina / Arkady Borisov
Published Online: 2014-01-25 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.2478/itms-2013-0014


The paper focuses on transportation trip generation models based on mixed-use and transport infrastructure near the site. Transport trip generation models are considered with an aim to improve the accuracy of transport generated trips. Information systems are reviewed, and “smart growth” criteria that could affect the accuracy of trip generation models are also identified. Experimental results of transport generated trips based on linear regression equations and “smart growth” tools are demonstrated.
