Trip Distribution Models

Trip distribution models strive to predict the number of trips that will be made between a pair of zones for a particular trip purpose. These models try to mathematically describe the destination choice phase of the sequential demand analysis procedure. There are various models of trip distribution. However, most of the models incorporate the same basic factors which affect the number of trips between an origin zone and a destination zone. The models differ in their characterization of these factors and in the way these factors are assumed to affect the trip distribution.

The factors (for any given trip purpose) which affect the number of trips between two zones are:

Four different models are presented here. These are (i) Gravity model, (ii) Intervening opportunities model, (iii) Choice model, and (iv) Entropy Model.
