Abstract

This paper presents a part of a research project that intends to develop an evaluation model foraccessible designs in large public transport facilities.Proposed evaluation model focuses on benefits of accessible designs to the public which consistsof a variety of people including elderly and disabled people. In order to capture the benefits, theresearch has developed a new concept called ?Coping model?, which can describe situationswhere the more accessible the design of a facility or service, the more benefits a variety ofpeople can receive.A pedestrian simulation model has also been proposed as a tool to materialise the coping model.The simulation has been designed to represent interactions between people and facilities. A briefsummary of the experiment performed to obtain empirical data for the simulation, whose resultscoincide with the coping model, was included as well.
