Abstract

Increasing dominance of private car as a mode of transport is due to its inherent advantages associated with its usage. In Tripoli, Libya due to rapid increase in car usage associated with poor public transport system, has resulted in increase of traffic congestion, road accidents and street parking spaces. This study aims to identify the factors encourage users of own car to switching to public transport. Introducing the public transport (PT) system and reduce own car users simultaneously has become necessary for solving congestion problems and reduces road accidents and improve travel time for all trips. A questionnaire survey was carried out on users of transport in the city such as car owners, passengers, taxis and micro buses drivers (n = 600). The probability of car drivers switching to public transport was examined based on scenario several options such as reduce and improve in public transport travel time. Logistic regression technique has been used to analyses the factor that impact users to switch their trips to public transportation alternatives. Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) and Excel 2007 software were used to analysis the questionnaire in this study.
