Evaluation on the Transfer Efficiency between Intercity Rail and Conventional Public Transit

Based on regional integration, the concept of a “one-hour traffic circle” is widely mentioned. Due to such increasing traffic demand in the region, intercity rail transport has been proposed widely. However, unlike urban rail transit, intercity rail cannot travel deep into the core area of the city, which makes the transfer with conventional public transit an important aspect to consider. Taking intercity rail and conventional public transit as the objects, this paper mainly focused on the transfer efficiency evaluation between the two. First, the characteristics of intercity rail are introduced. Second, six indexes were selected to evaluate the transfer efficiency, including coordination capacity, average transfer time, average transfer distance, per capita transfer facilities area, completeness, and rationality of transfer guide facilities. Thirdly, the AHP method was adopted to establish the transfer evaluation model. Finally, based on the project of Ning-He intercity rail, Jingmingjiayuan station was chosen to evaluate the transfer efficiency.
