Walkability or walking accessibility is a specific type of accessibility that relates to how simple it is to go around and get to places on foot in a given region. PLOS, or pedestrian level of service, gauges the general accessibility of a route, walkway, or facility for pedestrians. This indicates how pedestrians view the facility's pedestrian friendliness and is directly tied to factors. Apalit is a first-class municipality in the province of Pampanga, and Barangay San Vicente which is considered to be the municipality's central barangay was selected as the study area for the research. The study area is exactly 970 meters in length. The number of pedestrians in the segment was estimated using Raosoft Calculator and were sampled using inductive reasoning. Different methodologies were adapted and modified to identify the pedestrian level of service. Six major criteria with their respective sub-factors were used in the questionnaire to identify the level-of-service per sub-section of the two stations. This study suggests that, in addition to periodic walkway maintenance and routine pavement cleaning, improvements and additions of non-continuous pedestrian walkways, identification of pedestrian crossings across all street segments, and easement of traffic control be made.
