Abstract

Transferability between urban rail and bus transit is an important indicator for evaluating efficiency of a multi-modal transit system. Transit transfer is concerned with distance, safety, comfort, clarity, and equipment applicability. This paper presents a Multi Criteria/Attribute Decision Making (MCDM/MADM) model for measuring transfer efficiency between urban rail station and its feeding bus stops. The model incorporates four criteria and nine indicators for assessing transferability at rail-bus transit nodes. A case study of two typical rail stations in Wuhan city is conducted to illustrate the model. Transferability may be applied for evaluating physical rail-bus connectivity at rail stations, through which transfer problems are identified and improvement plans are suggested.
