Mobility within cities and the role of pedestrians in the urban scene are among the main themes of debates about the problems to be faced today. In this scenario, walkability in the urban environment, understood as a dimension of the built space that prioritizes pedestrians and encourages walking as a form of displacement, is possibly the most desired feature in contemporary cities. Walking is a necessity in any urban areas, given the compact development, high density, mixed use and dependence on public transport. Faridabad is a major industrial town of Haryana state. It has lots of industrial labour population which commutes and resides in the unauthorized colonies, slum area and nearby villages. Walking is part of daily commuting for a majority of Faridabad people. Objective of this research is to measure the features in the built environment at the major transit hubs in the Faridabad city; these measures can be replicated. This study is an objective type study for which data are measured on infrastructure such as road geometry and land-uses in the built walking environment. This research paper will investigates and evaluates the walkability of Faridabad city Metro stations area.
