Special Land Use Trip Generation in Virginia

Report No: 81-R35

Published in 1981

About the report:

Vehicle trip rates at shopping centers, apartment complexes, and subdivisions throughout Virginia were determined from seven-day volume counts. These rates were then compared with rates reported in four recognized sources of trip rate statistics and with Virginia rates developed approximately ten years ago. Within the Virginia data, the rates in the various areas of the state and the rates at sites served by transit and not served by transit were compared. Also, the time of occurrence of the peak traffic flow at the three land uses was investigated. Conclusions regarding the above were developed, and recommendations regarding the use of trip rates in planning were made.
