LOS ANGELES UNION PASSENGER TERMINAL - CAPACITY STUDIES OF A MAJOR INTERMODAL TRANSIT STATION

In April 1994, the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) commissioned a study of the Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal, also known as Union Station. The principal purpose of the study was to assess the access and internal circulation flows, and the corresponding capacity limitations of the station facilities. The study encompassed simulation based analyses of the train operations in the railroad corridor accessing the station, the pedestrian flows within the station, and the vehicular/ pedestrian flows around the immediate station site. In addition, the study addressed limited engineering assessments of site modifications, principally within the rail corridor. This paper discusses the study and its results.
