A PROCEDURAL GUIDE FOR THE DESIGN OF TRANSIT STATIONS AND TERMINALS. PHASE I. DESIGN OF TRANSPORTATION INTERFACE FACILITIES

The guide provides a synthesis of state-of-the-art concepts regarding the planning, design, and evaluation of passenger transportation stations. The enclosed material directs transportation planning teams to search for efficient station designs. The guide describes the important stages and considerations in a comprehensive terminal analysis methodology. When it is used with the two supplementary research reports, the specific details of the various tasks are given. The guide acknowledges that the transit station design process requires contributions from many disciplines and skills. It assists to coordinate station development programs in accommodating inputs from the disciplines. It further highlights the elements of different stations to assure valid comparisons relative to performance and cost criteria.
