RESEARCH ON TRANSFER BEHAVIOR AND ESTIMATION OF TRANSFER RESISTANCE BETWEEN RAILWAY TERMINALS

This paper considers the behaviour of people transferring between railway terminals in the Osaka Umeda district of Japan, with particular reference to the elderly. A questionnaire survey was followed by analysis of the factors affecting selection of a route. These included physical barriers such as stairs but resistance to transfer routes also came from lack of local knowledge or psychological factors. Equivalent time coefficients were calculated on this data and used to produce a generalized time. This, combined with transferring resistance, was used to compare the status of route conditioning and enable the development of guidelines to plan improvements.
