86 A manual developed by the Institute of Transportation Engi- neers (ITE), Trip Generation, 8th Edition, provides information for estimating the number of vehicle trips that may be gener- ated by a specific building category, under a land use category. The information in this manual is provided based on approxi- mately 4,800 trip generation studies submitted to ITE by: public agencies, consulting firms, universities and colleges, developers, associations, and local sections, districts and student chapters of ITE (Institute of Transportation Engineers 2008). The ITE Manual contains trip rates data for 162 land uses, under ten major land use categories for several time analysis periods (e.g., weekdays and weekends). These major land use categories are: Port and Terminal (Land Uses 000-099), Industrial/Agricultural (Land Uses 100-199); Residential (Land Uses 200–299); Lodg- ing (Land Uses 300–399); Recreational (Land Uses 400–499); Institutional (Land Uses 500–599); Medical (Land Uses 600– 699); Office (Land Uses 700–799); Retail (Land Uses 800–899), and Services (Land Uses 900–999). The land use classes directly related to freight activity are listed in Table 64b. The land use classes in Table 64b are those that have explicitly calculated FTG rates, based on a percentage of total traffic. The classification type is a single code, and the geography is a single “site,” though it is unclear if the site is a tax parcel or a structure.

TRB joint National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 739/National Cooperative Freight Research Program (NCFRP) Report 19: Freight Trip Generation and Land Use explores the relationship between freight trip generation and land use.

The report consolidates available freight trip generation models in an electronic database to assist practitioners interested in using these models; identifies potential approaches to develop and apply freight trip generation models; and estimates establishment-level freight trip generation models in a number of case studies.
