TOWARD A METHODOLOGY FOR EVALUATING ALTERNATIVE TRANSIT STATION DESIGNS
The paper describes a comprehensive approach for transit station design that includes criteria development for system users and operators. This approach involves an iterative process wherein a basic design is created and evaluated relative to established criteria and then incrementally modified until all objectives are satisfied. A comprehensive set of criteria for assessing the performance of alternative transit station design configurations is provided and an interest-impact matrix model is recommended for transit station evaluations. The potential of the evaluation framework is in application to numerous terminal design settings.
