Abstract

Nowadays, with the growth of population, road expanding and approachability to the diverse commuting option Multimodal Trips which means using two or more transportation modes for a trip between two nodes; are increasingly recognized as a consequential factor in solving traffic congestion problems. The import of this quantitative study is discussed about the time factor to encourage students to shift towards public transport, furthermore. The foremost purpose of this study is motivating people who use their own cars to shift toward public transportation in their inner-outer travel. The scheme of this quantitative study is to identify the importance of the Multimodal Trip as a success factor in the transportation world. The subject of the Multimodal Trip effect on the mode choice traveller and has been statically significant. There were significant interactions between time and cost, parking charge fees for Multimodal Trip. The data collected and demographic details are analysed like age, gender, educational level and travel behaviour in regard to the transportation mode. For a description of the survey data, SPSS is used and logit model is applied. The questionnaire designed based on social or economic preference, trip characteristics and probability of shifting from private vehicles to public transportation mode, and supporting reasons to improve public modes of transportation inside and outside the campus as multimodal trip. The methodology of this study is an empirical research in which a survey was conducted among the students at The National University of Malaysia with a numeric sample. Hence, a case study based on areas around UKM campus is used to demonstrate the results. The results show that the time made a significant contribution in motivating private vehicle users to switch public transport.
