Modelling of trip generation based on school attraction

Ab. Rahman, Rosnita (2009) Modelling of trip generation based on school attraction. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Faculty of Civil Engineering.



Trip generation is a very important part in transportation planning and traffic engineering. It used as a model analysis to forecast the population, land use, economic, travels and revenues in area wide. From the trip generation, the other analysis can be carried out which are trip distributions, modal split and trip assignment. This study is an attempt to throw light on determine primary school trip production and attraction rate in Skudai Town. As generally, in Malaysia, trip generation has often been treated lightly with very little research works carried out. Regression analysis using multiple linear regression method was adopted for the modeling process. The data includes three parameters that are considered to determine school trip generations in Skudai Town are accessibility, holding capacity and cost index. The finding of the research shows that the accessibility is the strong factors that affecting trip generation in Skudai Town. This result of trip generation of primary school trip generation in Skudai Town is useful for the further study on trip distribution, mode choice and trip assignment in order to forecast the travel demand for Skudai Town in the future time period.
