Private University Students’ Mode Choice Behaviour for Travel to University: Analysis in the Context of Dhaka City

Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, is facing tremendous pressure in meeting the traffic demand of its inhabitants. In Dhaka among other trips, significant percentages of trips comprise education trips. A paper-pencil-based survey has been conducted by the University of Asia Pacific students in Dhaka from May 2016 to July 2016. The result from exploratory analysis and multinomial logit model revealed that cost, comfort, time and availability are the main factors for choosing different modes for private university students’ education trip. Results showed that the magnitude of the coefficient of attribute comfort is significantly higher compared to travel cost and travel time. The result from this paper can be used by policymakers and government agencies to provide strategies that support in a more cost-effective and comfortable journey to the university.
