dc.description.abstractThis thesis provides planners with a quantifiable basis for developing design guidelines for pedestrian access to LRT stations. Approximately 1,800 peak hour LRT users were interviewed about their LRT trip. Pedestrians were asked to point out on a map their approximate origin or destination. From this information, walking distance guidelines were developed. Catchment area maps were produced and the relationship between reported walking time and measured walking distance was observed. The research strongly indicates that people walk further to reach an LRT station then they walk to reach a bus stop. Using bus walking standards will underestimate LRT walking distances by about half. The average walking distance to suburban stations is 649 m with a 75th percentile distance of 840 m. At CBD stations the average walking distance is 326 m and the 75th percentile distance is 419 m.
