|Abstract:||The prospect of providing economic and comfortable “Last Mile Connectivity” (LMC), i.e. from the trip ends to the point of accessing a public transport system, is an area which is not given proper attention in cities of India, which includes many metropolitan cities like Delhi. Also the number of private vehicles had increased tremendously in Delhi since 1991 to 2011. In this alarming situation, the Last mile connectivity (LMC) is of vital importance that a rapid paradigm shift is taken on in order to move people away from private vehicles towards the role of public transit. The research discuss about overview of transport conditions of Delhi and selected five metro stations by doing surveys regarding last mile connectivity. The important questions that the project tries to address are: an evaluation of comfort, time, space, cost in the LMC as a part of the total journey for rapid transportation system users; their preferences and options available, for LMC; and in the end, whether inadequacy of efficient LMC options is a major factor in the commuter’s choice of modes and how it involves the overall running efficiency of a public transit organization.|
