Currently in urban planning practice, as in new construction and at reconstruction, paid not enough attention to pedestrian flows movement, thereby reducing the usability pedestrian communications like one of the indicators to measure the efficiency of the transport system. This article describes the specific features points of generation and absorption pedestrian flows. The main purpose of research is to determine the quality of service on the pedestrian lanes on the basis of the developed model of pedestrian correspondence in a residential area of large and major cities. The statistical analysis of generation and absorption of pedestrian traffic of gravity points are made on Kharkiv sleeping district example. Obtained results is simulating model of gravity allows to describe the real life situation and create the matrix of pedestrian correspondence in city’s sleeping areas. As a result of the imposition of correspondence received on sections of the road network it has been possible to determine the values of pedestrian traffic parameters. These parameters are allowed to carry out an analysis to determine the level of pedestrians service. The research results can be applied by experts during design of residential areas, or in placement of new facilities gravity pedestrian flows in the existing building.
