Strategies for Reducing Passenger Congestion in Rail Stations: European Case Study

In January I’ll be making a presentation about my recent research on using new technologies (mostly) to help reduce passenger congestion in rail stations (metro, regional and long-distance railways). The presentation’s original title was more exciting, “Passenger Congestion at Rail Stations – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly” but as the research progressed it became clear that focusing on solutions, and especially ideas for using applications and new technology (since standard design practices and modelling are fairly well understood) made more sense. Here are the details:

  • San Francisco – SPUR – Thursday January 8, 12:30 PM
  • Washington DC – Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting: Workshop 194: Rail Station Congestion Management and Capacity Expansion; Sunday, January 11, 2015 1:30PM – 5:30PM Convention Center, 147A.

Here’s a link to the presentation: Thinking outside the station: Addressing rail station congestion in Europe.
