 Abstract
Walking behaviors are one of the most basic transport modes in daily life. As a result, the efforts and concerns on pedestrians are consistently increased. This study tried to reveal significant factors for pedestrian volumes through structural equation models and compare the impacts of the whole time of day, off-peak time, peak time on the pedestrian volumes. The results of the analysis show that commercial business factors, accessibility factors, walking environment factors are the most significant factors that increase pedestrian volumes. Whereas, housing factors do not contribute to increase the pedestrian volumes. In the non-peak time, the weight of commercial business factors is higher than the whole time of day, while the weight housing factors, accessibility factors, walking environment factors are lower. In the peak time, however, the weight of commercial business factors decreases rather than the whole time of day, while the weight of the other factors increase.
