  • Abstract

    The rapid development of urbanization, population growth and the rapid development of economy resulted in the rapid increase in the total number of motor vehicles in the modern cities of India. Consequently, the importance of forecasting of the travel demand model has been increased in the recent years. Forecasting of the travel demand model involves various stages of trip generation and distribution, mode choice and traffic assignment. Among these stages, the mode choice analysis is a prominent stage as it considers the travelers mode to reach their destination. Further, study of mode choice criteria has become a vital area of research as individual and household socio-demographics exert a strong influence on travel mode choice decisions. There is a huge literature on travel model choice modeling to predict the range of trade-offs of transportation of commuters considering travel time and travel cost. In such literature intercity mode choice behavior has gained significant attention by several authors. In this study an attempt has made in order to calculate the model share of the different modes between the circle to the circle, and it is found that the modal share of 2-wheeler is 70 %, bus is about 23 % and car is about 7% of the total trips.
