Trip Generation Modeling in the Residential Areas of Downtown Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines


Rapid urbanization will adversely affect the community and its environment without careful planning and intervention. This study was conducted to investigate the trips generated by the people residing in residential communities in the downtown area of Cagayan de Oro City, Misamis Oriental, Philippines. It also developed a mathematical model to estimate the number of trips produced in the study area. A multiple regression analysis was employed to achieve these objectives. It was identified that the number of trips produced per household corresponded with the increase in the number of family members, the number of vehicles owned, the household's income level, and the dwelling type. The developed model will serve as a reference for regional and urban planners in forecasting future trips in the area and in the formulation of policies and recommendations that will advance the land use and transportation setting of the city.
