Transportation occupies an important place in modern life and contributes to the economic, industrial, social and cultural development of any country. One of the major problems in the urban transport scenario is the proliferation of personalized modes of transport. The desired proportion of travel by public modes of transport is much lesser resulting in increased road-congestion, and inefficient use of road space. Due to this reason, it is imperative to promote travel by mass transport. Effort has been made in this study to understand the trip making characteristics and the travel demand based on household surveys, and traffic and transport services for a selected region in Trivandrum city (i.e., 16 zones according to 1981 municipality ward map). The data for project was obtained through NATPAC, Trivandrum. Modelling studies were carried out using Cube (voyager) software for trip generation, trip distribution and modal split. Multiple linear regression equations were developed taking population and employment as independent variable using SPSS software. Trip distribution is performed using Cube and friction factors are calibrated so that the inter-zonal trips are accurately predicted. The least predicted average zone to zone trip error was found to be varying by 22 percentages from the actual trips between zones. Modal split is then performed based on the cost of travel by various modes considering the ‘Sequential Binary logit-modelling’ approach. The predicted values were found to be closely matching with the actual modal split values.
