The critical factors for a multimodal passenger terminal policy for Canada were determined. The research methodology consisted of a literature review, data collection, and analysis. The data-collection phase used two questionnaires. The results of the first questionnnaire, which was an open-ended questionnaire administered in Europe, Japan, and the United States, were used as input for a closed-ended questionnaire administered to all multimodal passenger projects in Canada. The results were analyzed by using paired comparisons of factor scores and an importance index. The results indicated that the critical factors, in order of priority, are integration of various modes of transportation, promotion of public transportation, cost of terminal, government cooperation, operating factors (safety, security, etc.), historical building preservation, environmental concerns (noise, air pollution), urban development, and reduction of local traffic congestion.
