METHODOLOGY FOR THE DESIGN OF URBAN TRANSPORTATION INTERFACE FACILITIES

Procedures and techniques are described which determine measures of the performance of transit station designs. Categories of measures are defined according to the manner by which they are treated in the design process; as a result of policy, or as measures of performance and economic efficiency. Policy items considered include concessions, advertising, personal care facilities, telephones, acoustics, construction materials, design flexibility, parking facilities, and provisions for the handicapped. Performance measures are associated with passenger processing, passenger orientation, the physical environment safety, and security. The policy and performance considerations along with cost factors are used to specify a systematic transit interchange facility design methodology that is recommended to practitioners. Comprehensive descriptions of appropriate analytical techniques for the evaluation of transit station designs are provided in the appendices to the report.
