Determining the Impacts of Pedestrian Facility Improvements on Mode Choice of Car Uses: A Case Study of the Ortigas Center

Promoting non-motorized transportation like walking is often overlooked as a solution for traffic congestion in Central Business Districts (CBDs). This research aims to determine how improvements in pedestrian facilities would affect the mode choice of car users in Ortigas Center in Metro Manila. Through Binary Logistic Regression, it was determined that the presence of sidewalk railings increases the likelihood of mode shift for trips going in and out of Ortigas Center, while the presence of covered sidewalks and walkways increases the likelihood of mode shift for trips within Ortigas Center. The study results can be used as a guide in determining which pedestrian facilities should be prioritized in CBDs and future land developments.
