Abstract: Usage of motorized modes as well as non-motorized mode for any city/area is the simplest parameter to measure the sustainability of road transport. Factors affecting to such share could be many including city size, population density, road network density, per-capita income, safe infrastructure in using alternate modes, etc. Many researchers have studied such interrelationships for different countries. However, in India, the cities having the characteristics of mix landuse type has not been studied in that manner. In this paper attempt has been made to study the interrelationship among the road network, geography and demographic characteristics of an area/city to understand the usage of motorized and non-motorised transport.
