Pedestrian access to a network of public transport

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

The location of the bus stops is very important in urban and suburban contexts. The same importance of safety perception and comfort during transport operations is attributed to accessibility to bus stops. The placement of bus stops is a crucial factor to increase safety of passengers and pedestrians as well as the efficacy and efficiency of local public transport operations. To correctly localize these infrastructures, designers use physical parameters, such as maximum walking distance and travel time. While critical factors related to the quality of pedestrian access to the bus stop, to the real walked distance or to land use of bus stop areas are not taken in to account. The purpose of this paper is to propose a GIS methodology, which may correlate qualitative and quantitative factors that characterize the pedestrian access network to the bus stops.
