Trip Generation Submodule of SMARTPLANS

The Trip Generation Submodule uses multivariate linear regression modeling to predict the trip productions (Oi|p) and trip attractions (Dj|p) per origin zone i and destination zone j in the study area for time t+1, respectively. The program allows the user to specify models for multiple trip segments p. The general models are formulated as follows:

where betas are the estimated parameters for each model, while X’s and Y’s are significant variables pertaining to the characteristics of the origin zones i and destination zones j, respectively.
