Planning Model of a Transit Village around a Subway Station

The construction of a transit village is one of the effective ways to achieve the concept of transit-oriented development (TOD) planning around major rail transit stations. The mismatch between land use intensity and carrying capacity of public transit, however, may lead to the deviation from expected planning vision, which makes it significant to put forward rational land use and intensity model for transit villages. This study summarized land use pattern and layout for transit villages around different types of subway stations, and the allowable intensity model has been presented to consider the carrying capacity of the metro line. The aim is to maximum the subway system ridership, and the decision variables are floor area ratios for all types of land use. The constraints include restrictions on land use density, land use combinations, and level of service facilities. An example has been conducted to illustrate the application and result of this model.
