Pedestrian flow takes place in confined environment on stairways under the influence of composition, direction of movement, and schedule of trains. During peak-period, alighting and boarding rate is quite high resulting in very high pedestrian movement from one platform to the other to catch the next train at interchange stations. The transfer of passengers from railway platforms through common undivided stairways becomes difficult, uncomfortable, and unsafe at times when pedestrian flow… 

Effect of stairway width on pedestrian flow characteristics at railway stations

The overall efficiency of transit operation depends on effective operation of various facilities like transit units, transfer stations and access infrastructure. Stairways at transit stations are

Comparative Study of Macroscopic Pedestrian Flow Characteristics on Stairways at Rail Transit Stations

In order to ensure desired level of service at stairways; particularly during heavy flow; and to evaluate evacuation strategies during emergency situations, it is necessary to study characteristics

Effect of Passageway Width on Pedestrians Flow Characteristics in Intercity Railway Stations

Abstract Rail transportation is most economical means of the mode in comparison to road transportation. Intercity railway stations are nodal points of the rail network. With the growing demand and

Determination of Pedestrian Level of Service for Undivided Stairways at Suburban Rail Stations in Developing Countries

TLDR
Ranges of the flow parameters defined for LOS criteria found in this study are significantly different from those reported in the literature and in manuals in developed countries such as the U.S. Highway Capacity Manual.

Estimation of Free Speed of Pedestrian Flow on Stairways at Busy Suburb Rail Transit Station in India

TLDR
In this study free speed of pedestrians considering characteristics such as age, gender, and with or without luggage in ascending and descending stairways located on platforms in suburban and intercity railway stations was examined.
