AN INCREMENTAL METHOD FOR RAIL STATION AREA TRAFFIC IMPACTS ANALYSIS--SEATTLE EXPERIENCE

This paper, which appears in a compendium of conference papers, describes an incremental method for conducting traffic impacts analysis around a rail station. The method was used successfully to assess traffic impacts analysis around proposed commuter rail stations in the Puget Sound region. The need for conducting an efficient and effective station area traffic impacts analysis led to development of an incremental approach. The method is consistent with the existing incremental transit model, and interfaces with local models. The model employs a simple logit formulation for estimation of park-and-ride traffic distribution on the street-network surrounding a rail station. The entire process of traffic impacts analysis was implemented within a user-friendly spreadsheet.
