This paper analyzed and compared the service level and satisfaction of the sidewalks in collector roads from 6 different location, which has a lot of volume of pedestrians. For the study, it performed an investigation of road geometry, flow, research about satisfaction of walking and video recording. Based on this data, this study computed the service level of the sidewalks and pedestrian satisfaction. This study made a sense of correlation between service level and satisfaction. Also it focused on factors influencing on the effectiveness of satisfaction. This study also analyzed the change of walking behavior chracteristics according to the change of the level of satisfaction. This study adopted Multi-Modal Level of Service(MMLOS) method, because it could consider more factors. This study reached the conclusion that MMLOS method cannot completely reflect the level of pedestrian satisfaction. We have to consider more factors than in the current system for use in the development of sidewalk design. The result of this study is expected to reflect the pedestrian satisfaction in future sidewalks design.
