Accessibility is usually mentioned as the essential principle in new urban planning and land use growth theories. Researchers have proposed a change in the usage of auto mobility planning toward the planning of accessibility. Cities are primarily governed by various purposes, such as work, education and shopping. The main aim of this research is to find out the accessibility of Educational Trips related to different modes of transportation. With the useful resource of case studies included in the literature, we have learned terms and concepts of accessibility in order to achieve this objective. For doing accessibility analysis, firstly Nashik City's secondary information is gathered and evaluated. After doing the secondary analysis, gaps are identified and a primary survey questionnaire is designed so that accessibility can be measured and evaluated in a better way for the city. With the help of a design questionnaire, a primary survey is conducted in Nashik to learn about the city's current travel patterns as well as issues encountered during the trip. Data collected from the primary analysis are used to calculate an accessibility index with graphical method for different modes of transportation and mapped for each zone. Gravity method and Accessibility Ratio for Public transportation method which was used in this study can be used for finding the accessibility to different services like workplaces, recreational places, commercial places and many more. Policymakers can also use accessibility ratio method to improve public transportation infrastructure within the city.
