Research on Traveler Information Need in the Interior of Large-Scale Multi-Modal Transport Hub

Passengers' information need is the start of their information seeking and retrieving inside the large multi-modal transport hub. The users' information demands are uncertain and dynamic. Different transfer modes produce different transfer flow lines, and the information demands in the flow lines vary in different time and place. The method of principal component analysis is used in this study to investigate the information attention degree of different groups of people, combining their information needs degree. The utility function is used to analyze the dissemination utility of different information in specific regions. It is found that the dissemination utility of traffic information maximizes at the beginning and the end of the flow lines, while the utility of guiding information maximizes at the mid-point of the flow lines. The priority levels of information dissemination in different regions are useful in guiding a large-scale integrated transport hub internal information system.
