The purpose of this study was to investigate the status of pedestrian indicators in Trabiat and Valiasr pavements. The tool  used in this paper is questionnaire. The study population  consisted of pedestrians, shopkeepers and residents of these two areas. Using simple random sampling method and Cochran method, 380 people were selected as sample size. The research is applied and its nature is descriptive-analytical and inferential. The special innovation of this research is the identification of indigenous components effective in improving the quality of sidewalks with emphasis on traditional and modern sidewalks. The reliability of the questionnaire was calculated by Cronbach's formula was 0.902 in Tarbiat and 0.886 in Valiasr was. The results of the factor analysis findings summarized 46 variables into 12 main factors. Percentage of final variance for Tarbiat was 86.84 and 81.01 for Valiasr. The results of Pearson correlation test showed that there is a positive and significant correlation between all variables with pedestrian status in both pedestrians and in this regard the variable correlation in Tarbiat was higher than Valiasr. The results of t-test confirm that there is a significant difference and variance of mean between two pedestrians variables. Finally, the results of variance test show a significant difference between the three groups of passers-by, residents and traders.
