Developing Massachusetts Specific Trip Generation Models for Land Use Projects

This project aims to assist Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT) in developing trip generation rates for high-priority land uses in Massachusetts. It intends to develop an algorithm-based model for deriving accurate trip generation rates for development projects located in Massachusetts. It will also identify and study available innovative technologies such as machine learning models and video analytics that can be used to assist MassDOT's efforts to collect vehicular and multi-modal trip generation data. The results of the project will improve the current methods used by MassDOT for projecting trip generation rates resulting from new, large urban development projects.
