Bus Terminal

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]INTRODUCTION[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]A bus station is a structure where city or intercity buses stop to pick up and drop off passengers.

Bus geometrics, or the physical dimensions and maneuverability of the bus, determine the width of roadways, shapes of platforms, column spacing, ceiling heights, and other aspects of bus- level design.

The apparently insignificant detail of the right-side loading of buses often restricts terminal design possibilities.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

ENTRANCES

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]A Standard of 40 Persons Per Minute Would Be Representative of a Busy Situation With Occasional Traffic Disruptions. Where Free-Flowing Traffic Is Desired, A Standard Of 20 Persons Per Minute Should Be Adopted.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

SWEPT PATH

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]When a bus turns normally, it always turns about a point which is somewhere on the center line of the rear axle.

This is true whether motion is forward or backward.

The turns required to accomplish the movement and positioning of buses are variable and differ considerably with the equipment encountered.

The turning template provides a convenient graphic method to determine minimum clearances required.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

PLATFORM TYPES

PARALLEL LOADING[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Requires Excessive Amount Of Space.

Buses Must Usually Wait Until First Bus Exits.

Large Terminal Requires Pedestrian Under/Overpass Facilities To Protect Passengers While Crossing Lanes.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

RIGHT-ANGLE LOADING

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Out swinging Bus Door Which Forms a Barrier around Which Passenger Must Pass.

STRAIGHT SAW TOOTH LOADING

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Efficient-Employed Where Lot Is Comparatively Narrow and Deep.

Passenger Has Direct Approach To Loading Door.

Baggage Truck Can Operate Between Buses For Side Loading.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

RADIAL SAW TOOTH LOADING

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Most efficient buses swing into position along natural driving are.Space required at front is minimum-wide space at rear making maneuvering easy.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

QUEUING SITUATIONS

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Linear queues will occur where passengers line up to purchase tickets or board buses.

The length of a linear queue may be estimated on the basis of an average per person spacing of 20 in.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1777″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

AREA REQUIRED

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]5 Sq. M to 8 Sq. M area is required for one person.

For director it should be 20 sq. m.

Average space required 2.5sq.m per person for conference room.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”1778″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]
