Station design for dual-mode transit services will differ significantly from that of fixed-route, fixed-schedule services. The main alteratious will include: 1) accommodative of a more free-floating user population; 2) a design that will facilitate station re-use or removal; 3) accommodation of concentrated development adjacent to the station; 4) simplified use of the dual-mode system. The flexibility of a dual-mode system demands that more attention must be given to the use of station space than is required by fixed-route stations. Ticketing and platform areas are of prime importance, and these have to be modified in order to accommodate a low pedestrian density. The unique aspects of a dual-mode system will even alter accepted ideas such as station stability in providing the best station design.
