FIVE DECISIONS IN TRANSIT STATION DESIGN

In each of the five areas the decisions may either aid or hinder the realization of design objectives, depending on the interplay of client-consultant consultation. The decision areas include the nature of station design; how best to handle people-moving requirements; providing for amenities and environmental quality; providing intermodal transfer facilities; and the level of community involvement in professional problem-solving. The paper suggests design methodologies in each of these areas to guide the achievement of design objectives.
