Volume-To-Capacity Ratio

« Back to Land-Use Planning Dictionary

A measurement of the operating capacity of a roadway or intersection where the number of vehicles passing through is divided by the number of vehicles that could theoretically pass through when at capacity. If vehicles (v) divided by capacity (c) is less than one the facility has additional capacity. If (v)/(c) is greater than one it is likely that the peak hour will elongate into a peak period.
