The next two sections discuss the basic concepts of the trip-based and the activity-based approaches to travel demand analysis. The Trip-Based Approach The trip based approach uses individual trips as the unit of analysis and usually includes four sequential steps. The first, trip generation, step involves the estimation of the number of home-based and non-home based person-trips produced from, and attracted to, each zone in the study area. , number of trips from each zone to each other zone). The third, mode choice, step splits the person-trips between each pair of zones by travel mode obtaining both the number of vehicle trips and number of transit trips between zones.
