Abstract: Walk is an essential mode of human travel, and availability of data for this mode of travel in metropolitan city like Delhi is still in infancy. Therefore, the prime objective of this study is to analyze the appropriate distribution and found the mean and 85th percentile walking distance according to appropriate distribution that data follows. For this analysis, the data were collected through interview survey conducted at various bus stops along the Delhi Transport Cooperation (DTC) route number 832 (Janakpuri D Block to Inderlock Metro Station) and route number 817 (Kair Village to Inderlock Metro Station). Appropriate distribution for dataset is computed by fitting the data to probability distribution function using easyfit software. The travel characteristics were discussed with respect to trip purpose and personal characteristics were discussed with respect to age and income. The mean walking distance of commuters from different areas to bus stops in the present study and is compared with the values of different authors.
