An object that represents a travel mode. Travel modes on a network dataset define how a pedestrian, car, truck, or other medium of transportation moves through the network. A travel mode consists of a collection of network dataset settings that define actions that are allowed on the network and how the actions can be performed. Selecting a predefined travel mode allows you to efficiently and consistently set a number of properties that are appropriate for the mode of travel you intend to model. Since a travel mode is a collection of properties that work together it is recommended to have a full understanding of how these properties interact before altering them on the fly for a particular analysis. A best practice would be to create a new travel mode in the network dataset in ArcGIS Desktop or ArcGIS Pro that is fully tested to ensure that is returns the required solution.
