Abstract

The latest statistical information of rapid increase in the use of the personal transport generally in Yemen and especially in Sana'a illustrate that 80% of the registered vehicles in the country are own cars and taxis which numbers have increased tremendously recently which is the cause of the increasing of the traffic congestion, accidents, inadequate parking space and air pollution, among other problems. Earlier studies in this subject, however, focused primarily on car safety issues rather than identifying factors influencing car use and car user mode choice behavior. Due to these problems, the objective of this study is focused on shifting car users to public transport mode transport and discussed the factors to encourage the traveler to shift towards public transport in order to increase road safety and enhance road environment. The data collected and demographic details are analysed like age, gender, educational level and travel behavior in regard to the transportation mode. For a description of the survey data, SPSS is used and logit model is applied. The questionnaire distributed in Yemen which is designed based on social or economic preference, trip characteristics and probability of shifting from private vehicles to public transportation mode. The obtained results reveal that the time and cost and convenient has a momentous role in encouraging the private vehicle users to switch to public transport.
