A Study of Travel Choices of Bahadurgarh City School Pupils

An increase in traffic volumes associated with school trips give rise to a highly congested area and pollution, diverting from sustainable development. Traffic generated by schools puts extra stress on the transportation system of the area where the school is located. The main motive behind this study was to inquire into factors affecting school pupils' mode choice of travel. The study will be effective to know the travel behavior and will be beneficial for the development and planning initiatory which will contribute to the achievement of a sustainable and safer transport system. A case study involving the pupils of nine Bahadurgarh schools was carried out. Pupils were encouraged to take part in the survey and to give their views about mode choice and factors responsible for choosing a mode. We observe that 17% of pupils surveyed travel to school by car/bike, 40% by school bus, 32% walking, and 11% by bicycle. Apart from this multinomial logit model (MNL model), the model is also prepared to take various parameters into account which affect the overall mode choice of pupils.
