TRANSIT STATION DESIGN: CASE STUDIES OF PLANNING AND DESIGN METHOD

The application of a previously developed and documented transit station design methodology is described. Two example design scenarios, a central area bus terminal and a rail rapid transit station are illustrated. The experiences with the station design procedures have shown the method to be very useful in selecting and improving upon a station design that compares to the stated design objectives. Technically, many subjective decisions are required even with the formalized method and, thus, objectivity must be stressed in terms of procedure rather than practice.
