Cohousing traffic studies

Does anyone have information on cohousing traffic volume — number of trips per 
day, etc — compares with standard traffic models?  Our forming cohousing 
community would like to have that info when talking with town officials.  

There are some posts from 2002 that mentioned a 1996 study of the 18 cohousing 
communities and an EPA funding study of Nyland that suggested 25% fewer car 
trips per household, but I haven’t tracked down the actual studies.  And it 
would be great if there were more recent and broader studies to refer to.

Thanks for any guidance you can provide…
