Guidelines for qualifying access to public transport stationsby and -
With the institution of the Urban Mobility National Policy, many Brazilian cities have increased the extension of their medium and high capacity public transport systems. However, the infrastructure around the access to the transport stations has not advanced significantly in terms of qualifications.
The guide Safe Access - Guidelines for qualifying access to public transport stations take up the improvement of accessibility around medium and high capacity transport stations in Brazilian cities. The content addresses five principles, 16 guidelines and 38 actions for the development of urban qualification projects. Investing in projects for busy urban areas benefits a greater number of people. By solving urban infrastructure problems at critical points of the city, it’s possible to minimize existing conflicts between transport modes and users, such as train station exits and the connection points.
