# Fundamentals of Transportation/Trip Generation/Problem

Problem:

Planners have estimated the following models for the AM Peak Hour

$T_i = 1.5*H_i \,\!$

$T_j = (1.5*E_{off,j}) + (1*E_{oth,j}) + (0.5*E_{ret,j}) \,\!$

Where:

$T_i\,\!$ = Person Trips Originating in Zone $i\,\!$

$T_j\,\!$ = Person Trips Destined for Zone $j\,\!$

$H_i\,\!$ = Number of Households in Zone $i\,\!$

You are also given the following data

Data
Variable Dakotopolis New Fargo
$H$ 10000 15000
$E_{off}$ 8000 10000
$E_{oth}$ 3000 5000
$E_{ret}$ 2000 1500

A. What are the number of person trips originating in and destined for each city?

B. Normalize the number of person trips so that the number of person trip origins = the number of person trip destinations. Assume the model for person trip origins is more accurate.
