Scale and Distribution of Coach Stations Based on Passenger Allocation—A Case Study of Nantong City

Nantong City will become an important transport node when the railway network is perfected in 2020. Then, coaches from Nantong City will serve new railway transfer passengers and increase regional and local passengers. Both types and the destination proportion will change, obviously. In the research, the authors allocate the passengers into current and pre-planned coach stations with the principles of accessibility, least transportation interference, and convenience. Four schemes are compared to determine the best scale and distribution of coach stations for better service and operating efficiency.
