The purpose of the trip and modeling process is to identify those meaningful determinants of trip making behavior, and express their effect in mathematical way so that they can be used with confidence as a predictive tool. In the case of this study, data was collected through questionnaires to the various household in the study area. Two zones, namely-: State low-cost and Moduganari in Maiduguri Metropolitan Council. Thirty (30) households were interviewed in the state low-cost. Thereby extending the result collected over the whole houses in the study area.

In state low-cost zone (2424) number of person trips per day was estimated, In Moduganari (4027) number of person trips per day was estimated. Of the various models of trip generation model, regression analysis was adapted for this work.
