Presentation: Changes in Trip Generation and Overview of the newly released ITE’s Trip Generation, 10th Edition

The presentation will present case studies in Arizona that show residential trip generation rates that are more than 40% lower than published rates. Because transportation infrastructure is directly influenced by trip generation rates, using inflated rates can result in oversized roadways and unnecessary traffic signals, which are both a waste of space and generally scarce funds. To address the underlying issues, ITE published the 10th Edition of Trip Generation in October 2017. The presentation will describe the features included in the new manual such as the availability of person-trip in addition to vehicle-trip data, the new electronic data collection system and the web-based tool for filtering data by date, region, urban context, etc.
