TRANSIT STATION RENOVATION: A CASE STUDY OF PLANNING AND DESIGN PROCEDURES
The general techniques and procedures for planning and evaluating transit interface facilities are applied comprehensively to the problem of station renovation. The 69th Street Terminal in Philadelphia is evaluated in terms of its performance in accomplishing its transportation function, its effectiveness in relation to transportation policies, development objectives and costs. The planning procedures are employed to develop possible improvement programs. The report identifies modifications to the transit station that will produce operational conformity with policy guidelines and suggests alternative renovation plans to meet system and user objectives. The alternatives are evaluated and compared using factor profiles. Modifications of the selected plans are suggested, and the methodology is reviewed in terms of its performance in the renovation planning process.
