Call for Data-ITE Trip Generation Manual, 10th Edition

ITE needs your help! We are taking two major steps forward regarding the upcoming 10th edition of the ITE Trip Generation Manual and your input is needed. For the first time, there will be the inclusion of an urban, people-based approach in this upcoming edition. The significance of this already valuable resource will increase by differentiating among data collected for urban, suburban, and rural sites. Where possible, it will provide vehicular and person trip generation data by travel mode. Data is needed to help expand this resource to include this valuable new information.
ITE is accepting trip generation data for all land-use types. Data are also needed for all types of mixed-use sites such as a multi-story apartment with 1st-floor commercial space or a convenience store, gas station, and fast-food restaurant combination. ITE also asks that you submit any data collected on pass-by and diverted trips and on trip length averages and distribution. These data will also be compiled, updated, and reported as conclusive findings are identified.
Data for this publication are being collected continually; however, to ensure data are considered for inclusion in the 10th edition of Trip Generation, please submit by December 15, 2016 to Lisa Fontana Tierney, ITE Traffic Engineering Senior Director, by email: lfontana@ite.org.
