Article Preview

Each year, according to Chinese and European statistics, there are many serious injuries and even fatalities of travelers into subway transit stations. Consequently, it becomes more and more important for transit authorities to evaluate these facilities (platform, gates, stairs, escalators, etc.) under critical traffic conditions, such as rush hours or emergency situations. The purpose of this paper is to review existing research results, develop the main Framework of station capacity assessment and finally point out the key issues of subway station capacity assessment.
