THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME SPENT AT STATION STOPS

The demand for high schedule speeds must be met by ensuring effective passenger interchange at stations and circulation within the coaches. To facilitate this, doors should be provided every 4,000 to 5,500 mm. These should offer a 1,250 to 1,300 mm wide passage. A space of 350 to 375 mm should be provided between door edge and partition for standing passengers, who will thus be moved out of the path of entering or leaving passengers. The use of swing-sliding (ss) doors will permit a simpler and lighter body structure and reduce draughts and at the same time improve noise insulation.
