Sample text

From the customer’s perspective, the quality of services provided by public transport is not at a satisfactory level that would urge them to replace their car with other modes, that is, bus, train, tram or a combination of these. But, as the world becomes more urbanised, there is a strong need for urban public transport to provide a viable alternative to individual car transport. However, the availability of opportunities for direct journeys when using public transport is limited. For this reason, the majority of trips require interchange zones, and hence areas which encompass one or more interchange facilities and public spaces used for access and/or transfer (Liu et al.

The PRESTO project (Dufour 2010) discussed the appropriate interchange infrastructure and operation to accommodate cycling needs and promote soft modes of transport. Investment in low-cost forms of transport was studied by Naude et al. (2005) in an interchange design with a focus on pedestrian needs. Regarding accessibility, transport interchanges face a challenge to be equally accessible to all kinds of transit users. Two kinds of barriers occur, especially regarding accessibility for people with disabilities.

Establishing sufficient capacity for ticket offices or ticket machines is likely to be a cheaper measure compared with design changes for the overall interchange. Barriers connected to validating or buying tickets could be reduced by having integrated and/or electronic ticketing. Travellers will have less need for buying tickets at interchanges and this could lead to fewer queues and higher user satisfaction (Nathanail 2008). Concerning information provision, the unpredictability of the journey experience is a significant problem (TfL 2009).
