Abstract: In India, among the various infrastructure sectors, transport is the prime sector performing dual role as a commercial organisation and vehicle for fulfillment of social obligations. It has a crucial role in the movement of people and goods from one place to another. Now-a-days, there is a steep increase in the mobility of the people with an ultimate aim to earn for their livelihood. In order to facilitate easy movement of people to different corners of the world, there are various modes of transport like road, rail, air and water ways. The better means of transport is the need of the hour. There is a stiff competition prevailing among various modes of transport. Long distance road transport network is non-existent, underdeveloped or poorly maintained in most parts of India. The burden of carrying long distance traffic, whether people or goods falls mostly on railways. It is due to largest network, number of trains, convenience, speed, safety and affordability. Even though the Indian Railways offer many services, the preference and need of the passengers are dynamic. It differs among the passengers based on their level of income, purpose of travel, distance of travel, age and other factors. As the needs of the passengers vary, the reason for them to select railways as convenient mode of travel also varies. There are various factors which influence the passengers to select train as their mode of travel among the various ways of transportation. In this aspect, this paper highlights the factors influencing the passengers to prefer train as their mode of travel.
