Urban form and the urban transport system have an enormous impact on the way of people generally travel. Travel can be characterized by trip frequency, modal choice, travel distance, route choice and so on. So with growing economies and population, there is an increasing tend of expansion of urban problem and auto-mobilization. This has a direct effect on the level of transport demand , the pattern of traveland also its impact on the behavioral change of the people on choosing the correct alternative mode for travel. Sustainable transport systems are those which aim to reduce the usage of resources and still giving an better output, means the transit system which can move a large no of people from one place to another place with a less usage of resources. So this transit system can be called a sustainable transit system on which all can depend in a various way for travelling.Most fundamentally, more emphasis should be on reducing the role of the private automobile as the prime mode for transport and try to put more focus on the other sustainable modes such as public transit.

The research aim is to study the current transport system of the study area and collect data by giving the choices to people of that area on the purpose of their transit mode choice. There are some preferences in the survey form which are filled by the local people and give their own choice on the existing transport systems. Some variables have been taken to find out the probability for choosing the right mode for the right trip. To find these main variables have been used are travel time, travel cost and the income of each person to make it related with their socio-economic behavior. Here mode choice probability has done y constructing a discrete choice model between the public transit and private own vehicle.

So BRTS (Bus Rapid Transit framework) is an advancement and it is up degree to the present transport framework. BRT is reasonable, versatile and financially savvy. The term of fast travel framework implies a type of rapid urban traveler transportation. Here, the method of transportation is transport henceforth it is called as transport quick travel framework (BRTS). Transportation offices and the framework will be distinctive shape diverse nations. Particularly for the creating nations, transportation is an issue and BRT is the most ideal approach to conquer it. On the off chance that a nation gets wealthier the improvement will be seen in various angles like training, industry, science and innovation and so forth., with the exception of transport which will deteriorate. There are numerous approaches to dispose of these movement issues and transport issues. What pulled in the nations to introduce BRT is the transport route idea as that it can cover entire city and is less expensive thanthe rail. BRT is a fast quick travel framework utilizing high limit vehicles, physically isolated transport ways, current station with electronic passage gathering, quick boarding and high administration recurrence which result more travelers and less blockage.The results of this study will establish to maintain a carrying capacity of the area on the basis of there people’s choice of mode for travel. Here I have enclosed all attributes value which are directly connected towards the existing transit mode and make it work for a valid model establishment. For figuring out the probability of choosing mode a binomial logit model has been establish.
