transport mode choice
The paper provides overview of the commuters’ behaviors and attitudes towards current transport modes used and what are the factors influences of the motorization trends within the last six years. By using the National Socio-economic Survey (NSS) and National Labor Force Survey (NLFS) as well as the primary data collected to know the private vehicles’ attitudes, it is found that the distance of commuters is getting far and they prefer to use private vehicles to commute, especially motorcycles that are faster and the cost is also reasonable. Based on the income level, it shows very clear evidence that higher income groups mostly use cars, and it is different from motorcycles that are used for all income levels. As a consequence, the share of public transports has been decreasing although government has been trying to improve the capacities and services of some public transports.
