Trip Generation at Special Sites

Report No: 84-R23

Published in 1984

About the report:

Seven-day volume counts were made at fast-food restaurants with drive-thru service, convenience markets, condominiums, drive-in banks, high-rise apartments, planned unit developments, mobile home parks, day-care centers, churches, suburban motels, and post offices throughout Virginia. Typical traffic patterns at the sites were determined from the count data. Based on available trip generation rates reported by the Institute of Transportation Engineers and an analysis of the count data, conclusions regarding valid vehicle trip rates for the above land uses were developed.
