Abstract

A study of pedestrians crossing behavior is conducted at an uncontrolled mid-block crosswalk in Istanbul, Turkey, to model the pedestrians waiting time, related to their behavior for making the crossing decision. This article focused on the issues encountered in the modeling of the operational behavior of pedestrians. The discrete choice framework is used because of its capacity to deal with individuals' choice behavior. Pedestrians waiting time is classified into three levels, including low, medium, and high levels based on the level of service of pedestrians waiting time. The pedestrians' behavior prediction has been improved by analyzing, taking into account three levels for pedestrian behavior.
