This thesis consists of 2 parts. -Part A- Walking accessibility is defined as how easy it is to access public transport terminals by walking. The public transport terminals are Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations. Walking effort instead of walking distance or walking time is used to represent the utility of walking as access mode. This effort is expressed by an equivalent walking distance, which consists of actual walking distance and generalised walking effort. The main objective of this research is to develop walking accessibility measure using equivalent walking distance.
