Abstract: The purpose of this article is to develop the methodology of the Analytical Hierarchy Process-AHP method to assess the sustainability Index of public transport systems and pedestrians. In this paper , the 17 indicators for assessment of the sustainability index of the public transport system (Seven under the economic indicators, four under the environmental categories and six under the social categories) has been selected for evaluation for the wider stability of transportation system. Their statistics have been collected by the passengers' survey in the South Delhi area on the basis of evaluation and priority. In these early outcomes, major parameters like, environmental pollution in the environment category, public health in social category and productivity in economic category are revealed for effective development of developing countries. The AHP method is implemented to establish benchmarking assessment and prioritization, making permanent indicators for the development of public transport system. In developing countries, the development of public transport system and the broad stability indicator for the public transportation in the field of study area can be used to evaluate permanent mitigation measures and their scenarios to improve public transportation system including pedestrian and feeder bus services.
