Pedestrian walking is a major mode of transportation in Indian cities and also effective mode of transportation for short trips. In this study pedestrian Cross walk data was collected from two locations in Rajkot city, India. The data was collected at R.M.C chowk and Mavdi chowk. These data were analyzed for finding pedestrian characteristics like speed, flow and density. Pedestrian characteristic is depending on gender of the pedestrian, age of pedestrian and type of facilities. Capacity and level of service for about two sections was do in this study and compare the current level of service and facilities for pedestrian. Important to evaluate the quality of service of such crossing facilities with respect to under mixed traffic conditions. Road crossing difficulty as well as safety considered as primary factors along with pedestrian individual factors (gender and age), land-use type and roadway geometry. The inferences of these results highlight the importance of land use planning in designing a new set of pedestrian access facilities for unprotected crosswalks under mixed traffic conditions. Also, the study results would be useful for evaluating pedestrian accessibility taking into account different planning required degree of segregation with vehicular movement at unprotected mid-block crosswalk locations.
