COACH DESIGN FOR THE HELSINKI UNDERGROUND

After more than 20 years of planning, an underground system will be opened in Helsinki in 1978. In 1972, a short line was constructed, with six coaches for experiments. This article describes an analysis of these coaches from the point of view of ergonomics. A travelling experiment was organized, designed to simulate the final travelling situation. After the experiment the subjects filled out a questionnaire. During the trip the behavior of the subjects and their moving in and out was observed by two TV recorders and two film cameras.
