Abstract:

An effective plan needs to be done in order to encourage city residents to use non-motorized vehicles in the city to address the problem of congestion, delay, air pollution and noise pollution that arose. This paper analyzed characteristics of pedestrian and bicycle, which are main components of non-motorized transportation. Non-motorized transportation mode choice behavior was analyzed considering influence of trip distance. The application of a sustainable transport concept is essential for a clean, healthy and high quality environment. On the basis of emphasis regarding this concept between human life and the environment, it was developed to meet current and future needs. Non motorized transportation mode choice behavior was analyzed considering influence of trip distance. Data was obtained using state preference survey based on designed questions from 116 randomly selected respondents who are city residents. Descriptive statistical was performed on the data collected. The result shows that many city residents using motorized vehicles (67%) as a means of transportation within city. The case study suggested that the most acceptable distance for pedestrian and bicycle were respectively 8 and 12 km. Introduction of non-motorized transport mode shift model, particularly cycling and walking will increase healthy lifestyles and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
