GVITE Lunch Meeting
May 29, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm PDT
Trip generation is a key component of traffic impact analysis in site development projects. Engineers have traditionally used manual or spreadsheet-based methods to generate trips, looking up data from published manuals or referring to peer reviewed trip rates. These methods have been proven to be insufficient to account for new challenges in the analysis, such as internal capture, multi-modal adjustment, applying appropriate reduction rates, and data enhancement techniques such as aggregation and the exclusion of studies. In this presentation, the speaker will introduce OTISS Pro, an online tool, to perform trip generation analysis and to efficiently manage local trip generation data for site development projects.
