Design of bus station : a case study in Brighton

This paper investigates the design of bus stations in a physically constrained area through a case study of Brighton Bus Station, which is situated in the historic core of the city abutting the railway station complex. Bus and passenger data collection is primarily done manually and is supplemented by vidoegraphy.The analysis of capacity of the existing bus station is completed using microsimulaton software. In addition, a graphic simulation tool for tracking the swept paths of buses, taxis and lorries is used to formulate the proposed physical layouts for the bus station. The proposals were evaluated using a simple evaluation methodology developed in this study. (A)
