Abstract

The results of a study of the spatial transferability of various urban travel characteristics are examined. Such characteristics for the small metropolitan areas of Indiana, as well as other selected midwestern communities, are compiled and critically analyzed and compared with each other and with other local and national characteristics and trends. Trip frequency (generation) is examined at three levels of aggregation: areawide, zonal, and household. A framework is provided for the transferability of trip-generation parameters of concern to planners.
