Abstract

Shimla, a hill town, has emerged as a major tourist destination in the last decade. The city is facing major breakdown in its transportation system due to high inflow of floating population. Conjunction in core city area along its major spine and connectivity between old and new transit terminals are the most intense transport related problems of the city. This research aims at finding out alternative routes and modes to overcome these issues. It is an attempt to explore the impact of multimodal network in this hill town. First half of research deals with identification of new routes by using multi criteria analysis whereas second half identifies the preferred mode choice for public transport through people choice survey. Integrated results related to route feasibility and mode choice indicate huge saving in terms of travel time, transport energy and GHG emissions.

Keywords: Energy usage, Hilly region, Mode choice, Transport system.
