Abstract

Abstract


Public transit passengers use corridor spaces in transit stations to access transit services.
These transit stations are designed for multi-modal transportation purposes, as space
which connects each mode of transit between stations or planned areas plays an
important role in the movement of passengers from one mode to another. The
characteristics of corridor space vary according to the surrounding activities which shape
their diverse functions and the time taken by passengers to connect between transit
modes. An exploratory analysis was conducted to determine the basic properties and
functions of corridor spaces in Hakata station, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan with regard to
the availability of transit services and activities in station building area. Commercial and
facilities activities were selected to identify the characteristics of corridor spaces. A spatial
analysis of activities located along the corridor spaces and architectural performance
was also conducted using the betweenness analysis in order to identify the interaction
between subjected activities and archtecture space in station building. Each type also
contained specific functions which defined its spatial performance regarding transit mode
connection behavior. Results suggested that the arrangement of activities in corridor
spaces influenced passenger route-choice accessibility.
