For information on first part of this webinar series:

Overview: Decision-making regarding access to high-capacity public transportation is complex and affects many stakeholders. The planning, development, and operation of stations involves decisions and trade-offs among access alternatives. In turn, the decisions affect transit ridership, revenue generation, short- and long-term capital and operating costs, congestion, adjacent communities, and the environment. TCRP Report 153 provides guidelines to assist with the planning, analysis and implementation of access to high capacity transit stations.

NTI, in cooperation with the Transportation Research Board (TRB) offered a two-part webinar series. This webinar, the second in the series, covered the transit station typology and planning tool for assessing and trading off mode of access scenarios, and included these topics:

  • Station typologies
  • Derivation of the tool and default values
  • How the tool can be tailored to local conditions, and
  • An example application of the tool.


The presenters were:

  • Jamie Parks, Kittelson & Associates, Inc.
  • Kathryn Coffel, Kathryn Coffel Consulting, Inc.

This webinar is targeted to the many groups involved in planning, developing and improving access to high capacity transit stations, including public transportation and highway agencies, metropolitan planning organizations, planners, developers, and affected citizens.
