SIMULATION MODELING OF INTERMODAL FACILITIES IN THE DESIGN PROCESS

This paper discusses the application of UMTA's newly developed station simulation model (USS) to the transit station design process. The USS program is intended to be a design and evaluation tool to assist in developing alternative configurations for rapid transit stations. The design process described is a sequence of six phases leading to the successful resolution of a complex facility design problem. This report describes where USS can be effectively used in the design process to provide answers to key design questions.
