Accessibility of a mass transit through regular system plays a key role in increasing the ridership of the main system. The access and egress trips to and from the major transit system become crucial in absence of any formal mode available for feeder. This paper evaluates the existing feeder modes available for Bus Rapid Transit System. Current public buses and paratransit are analysed based on the service area coverage and service quality attributes respectively. The service attributes are worked out to be used as impedance for feeder design. The study proposes the strategies for feeder design using a gravity model.
