TRANSIT STATION PLANNING AND DESIGN METHODOLOGY

Station facilities may range from various kinds of bus stops to bus stations, rail transit stations, complex interline transit terminals, and station complexes integrated in varying degrees with other developments and functions. The planning and design of transit stations is intimately linked in space with the planning and design of line-haul, storage-maintenance, and other fixed transit facilities, with the vehicles and trains providing the moving elements of the service, and with the neighborhoods in which such stations are located. In the scheduled sequence of transit system development, the planning and design of transit stations occupy a certain place, generally following on early or preliminary overall planning and before construction of designed facilities.
