The Effects of Land Use Characteristics and Resident Population on Passenger Ridership of Metro in FuZhou

Growing challenges in urban mobility hinder urbanization and threaten China’s ambitions of becoming a sustainable and inclusive high-income nation. Ineffective public transportation, including limited coverage, lack of integration between public transit modes, and other supporting facilities, and lack of integration between planners and rail-based public transportation systems have only worsened traffic congestion and environmental degradation. A field survey collected data on land use density and diversity within a 900 m radius around 42 selected metro stations. The passenger volume count method and the residential population and working population density were calculated by cell phone signaling data to count the passenger ridership on weekdays during a 12-h period covering peak and off-peak hours at the 42 selected stations. Content analysis and descriptive analysis were applied, and results were mixed. To increase the use of public transport, other main components such as park and ride facilities and feeder bus services must be considered.
