The objective of research efforts reported herein is to develop gasoline vehicle soak and start time distributions and engine starts per day for EPA light-duty vehicle (LDV) and light-duty truck (LDT combining LDT1, LDT2, LDT3, and LDT4) classes using vehicle trip data collected in the 13-county Atlanta metropolitan area during the calendar year 2004. Given the equipment and methods used in the Commute Atlanta vehicle activity data can be linked back to general household demographic parameters (household income, household size, and vehicle ownership) and vehicle characteristics (vehicle type and model year). Approximately 80-85% of the vehicles in the study are not shared, meaning that most vehicle activity can also be linked back to individual driver characteristics (age and gender).
