A methodology is developed for the identification and evaluation of impacts created by transit terminals. A Catalog of Transit Station Studies is used to initiate the evaluation process with the identification of critical impacts using a cross and self-interactive matrix procedure. The cross-interaction matrix examines the impact that the station has on its environment as influenced by local land use patterns. The selfinteraction matrix establishes the station design elements and identifies the most sensitive station design components. Where important impacts exist, strategies for preventing or managing the issues involved are developed in terms of altering the station design variable, site location, or promoting changes in neighboring land use so as to provide an acceptable environment. The application of the method using spread sheet computer software is described.
