Abstract

Libya is a rich developing country which suffers the consequences of explosions in both human and motorization. This has been accompanied by a heavy toll of deaths and economic cost. Road accidents were the cause of I0% of all deaths. Therefore, this research foresee in contributing greater extra details on car users mode choice behavior to better understand the likely measures that would have to be taken to encourage greater public transport use. The survey was carried in Tripoli where there is high car ownership and use, and government bus available. To model the transport mode behavior of car use vs. government bus, binary logistic model was used to explore the factors affecting car/government bus and to predict the probability of changing from private car to government bus. The results obtained have shown that some measures have to be taken to encourage car users to use other forms of public transport. The current study is the first of its kind to explore the Libyan scenario in the matter investigated.
