Abstract

Mode choice modeling has been studied by transport planners in many researches’ applications. This study explores the relationships between travel patterns of commuters and their willingness to adopt an alternate mode. The study also estimated public transport share along with private vehicles. This research has been concentrated on the application of fuzzy logic technique in which the mode choice model provides the estimated modal split at the specified work centers in the study area. It is expected that the present study may be used in new transport policies by concerned authorities.
