    Mortuary trip generation?

    Any data sources out there for vehicle trip generation for a Chapel? This is a an assembly space used for weddings and funerals run by a well know mortuary chain.

    Thanks Chet

    This is a commercial operation as opposed to institutional. It's not a church and it's not a restaurant. It's something in between. I'm hoping for a study of a similar facility. Thanks for your reply.

    I see. Based on that, I'm not sure the ITE trip gen manual covers that kind of use. Anyone know? Buehler? Buehler?

    It is a place of public assembly. Should not matter if it is religious or sports or whatever.

    Seems like you believe this is a pretty unique use not covered by the general uses available from ITE. If this is this is the case, and judding from your posts, I think the only way to get data to satisfy your needs would be to do a quick study at another location(s).
    Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to make any progress.

    requisite punny response

    I would think the ADT could be high at times.

    After all, people are often dieing to get in these places.

    Thank you - I'll be here all week. Remember to tip your waiters and waitresses.

    Most organizations/institutions have member lists for mailing or whatever. I found it useful to request a list of member zip codes. no personal info just data about where people are coming from.

    I will post my thoughts, although this thread may already be DEAD.

    I imagine that this would fall under a special generator type of use. Like a venue that has concerts once in a while. They may not have a definable peak, although 5pm and later would seem to be when most of the viewing happen. Overflow parking would be an issue....maybe check for a shared parking agreement with adjacent business.

    That should about put the subject TO REST.
