Walking is the most primitive mode of transportation. In modern day, even though the advancement in technology and various advanced transportation facilities, this has not become obsolete. With increasing in population, there is more demand for a pedestrian facility as number of pedestrian increases. It is important to understand crucial aspects of pedestrian flow to avoid chaotic situations like stampede, especially in railway stations. Indian railways is one of the world’s largest railway network serving about 23 million passengers a day. In this study a lot of pedestrian data was collected from stairways and foot over bridges of Tata Nagar and Kazipet railway stations of India. Then conducted empirical studies on this data and recorded speed. density and flow of each facility. Statistical analysis was done to compare data sets of different facilities. In this study a model has been developed based on route choice behaviour of pedestrians using Floyd Warshall algorithm which gives the shortest path of a pedestrian. It is a microscopic model. It can explain lane changing behaviour of pedestrians. It is capable of simulating at different crowd levels and different widths of the facility. The model is validated by data collected from different facilities.
