Generation and Attraction of Freight by Land Use Characteristics

Trip generation and attraction rates by type of land use are a key element of local transportation and land use planning. Most estimates are based on personal travel rather than freight movement, and the freight estimates that are used are typically limited to the number of trucks. The objective of this research is to estimate the amount of freight activity generated or attracted by different types of land use for state and local planning studies. The research would extend truck trip generation estimates and guidebooks developed by the Institute of Transportation Engineers and the Truck Trip Generation Guide in NCHRP Synthesis 20-05/Topic 31-09. NCFRP funding for this project is contingent on the allocation of an equal amount by the National Cooperative Highway Research Program. Total project funding will be $250,000.</font></div>
