In the current study we bring out the impact of various social, economic, environmental, and transportation system characteristics on walk and cycle mode choice, when they are used as a main mode. The environmental factors include density and land use. The impact is determined using a logistic regression model, developed from the house hold survey data of Bangalore city, collected for the year 2009. The results showed a reduced likeliness to walk and cycle, with an increase in travel time using walk and cycle, and individual age. Individuals owning at least a private motor vehicle had less probability of using walk and cycle compared with individuals not owning any private motor vehicle. Females had a positive attitude towards walking than male. Mixed Land-use and increased density had a positive impact on walk and cycle mode use when compared with their reference group.
