Abstract/Description: The continued population growth is continually challenging transportation officials to institute measures to meet travel needs at a desirable level of service. A customer-oriented transit service which provides intermodal travel would provide an alternative to the personal automobile mode of transportation hence reducing traffic congestion caused by high dependency on single occupancy vehicles. To ensure higher rates of ridership, station areas need to be designed with features known to enhance transit patronage. The long-term success of transit projects is closely linked to creating connectivity to all modes in the station areas. Of high importance is the station area design which encourages the use of all modes of transportation including pedestrian and bicycle connectivity. This can be accomplished by adopting a station area facility design which focuses on seamless movement of passengers as they change their modes of transportation at the stations. This study establishes minimum design and evaluation criteria for public transit stations which have been designed with special focus on intermodal connectivity. The proposed criteria will be used by designers and planners when evaluating station area plans for transit project such as bus rapid transit and rail projects in Florida
