Development Of Empirical Model For Public Transport Modal Shares For Indian Cities

Public transport (PT) is function of various urban factors. As available empirical evidences, PT modal shares are influenced by urban environment variables such as population, urban form, density, average trip length, vehicle ownership, per capita trip rate, bus fare, etc. This paper presents to understand the correlation of various urban factors with PT modal share in Indian cities. As part of the research study, selected about 36 Indian cities and analysed the PT modal share correlation with identified 14 independent variables. The World cities PT modal shares having correlation with Population density, job density, urban form, average trip length, etc. The present study results revealed that Indian cities PT modal shares have correlation with population density, average trip length, population and congestion index.
