Design of Information Signs of Multi-Modal Travel at the Decision Points in a Comprehensive Transport Hub

Information signs are designed and displayed in the multi-modal systems to help travelers obtain needed information effectively and to facilitate their travel in the Comprehensive Transport Hub (CTH). It is quite often observed that travellers have wayfinding problems in hubs since the CTH nowadays is characterized by multi-levels, large scales, and complexity. For guiding travellers in their wayfinding processes, directional information signs are designed and displayed as the most important signs in the information systems. This paper mainly establishes an approach for the design of directional information signs for multi-modal travel in CTH. The utility value is used to optimize the priority of dissemination of the directional information. Information is gradated into three levels according to its coverage. A numerical example is illustrated to verify the proposed approach. This paper provides the basic knowledge that could be used in the design of the multimodal travel information signs in CTH.
