A methodology is developed for the identification and evaluation of the impact of transit terminals on their environment. A catalog of transit station studies is presented that enables the user to initiate the evaluation process with the identification of critical impacts using a cross- and self-interactive matrix procedure. The impact that the station has on its environment as influenced by local land use patterns is examined by using the cross-interactive matrix. The self-interactive matrix establishes the station design elements and identifies the most sensitive station design components. Where important impacts exist, strategies for preventing problems or managing the issues involved are developed in terms of altering the station design variables or site location or promoting changes in neighboring land use so as to provide an acceptable environment.
