Study And Forcasting Of Urban Transportation Of Barwani City For Future Development

Prashant Vyas, Vinay Deulkar


A variety of transport modes, such as, walking, cycling, two-wheelers, para-transit, public transport, cars, etc. are used to meet these travel needs. Travel demand is determined by a number of factors, the primary one being the size of the population. Other determinants include: average number of journeys performed by a resident each day (per capita trips) and the average length of each such journey (trip length). Travel demand has, thus, grown faster than the population because it is a function of both the rising number of trips undertaken by the incremental population as well as increased trip lengths necessitated by expanded city size. Further, it has been found that residents, on an average, tend to perform more trips per day as per capita income levels go up. A study carried out for the Ministry of Urban Development, covering 21 cities in the country, suggests that more than 75 per cent of the trips in a city are on account of either employment or education. The paper reviews existing researches and problem is defined with methodology and possible outcomes for research scope.
