can anyone explain to me how to find a point which is more accessible than another point. I am doing my project on "Best places to have a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) bus stop"

Just off the top of my head, a good place for a bus stop should include: 

-Accessability (can this place be reached via another sidewalk, road or bridge)

-Convenience (near other bus stops or other transit stop locations)

-Uniqueness (obviously not within 500-1000 feet of another bus stop, depending on usage)

I hope this gets you started.

yes, ma'am, I have collected the data about 1)population 2) other connectivity 3 present locations of bus stops 4) Age of people taking those bus stops 5) other connecting roads 

I already have all this data, now my project is on BRT Ahmedabad( India). So I would like to show to people that if Bus stand position is changed how much ridership will be increased. 

So please help me by giving an idea about it.

You may want to look into a Hot Spot Analysis—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop.  Based on population, distance from sidewalks, distance from other bus stops, and potentiality (can a car reach it? can a bus reach it?)  I think you create a concrete analysis of this issue.
