Mohd Lazi, Mohd Khairul Afzan (2017) Pedestrian speed characteristic at staircase in rail transit terminal / Mohd Khairul Afzan Mohd Lazi. Masters thesis, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM).


In Approaching Malaysia's Vision of 2020, Kuala Lumpur is eager on constructing a better public transportation system for passenger's convenience and widening the reachable for public transportation especially the public train system. A proper understanding of pedestrian movement becomes important in transportation policies in order to achieve satisfaction of pedestrian while using public transportations together with increasing the usage of public transportation by citizens. Therefore, the environmental problem of private transportation can be reduced. This study was focused on walking speeds of pedestrians at a staircase in rail terminal according to gender, age and loading condition by collecting data during peak hour and non-peak hour. Data analysis was completed by using the Semi-Automatic Video Analyze (S AVA). To use S AVA, video of pedestrian behavior has to be recorded, thus Masjid Jamek LRT Station was chosen as the spot of recording. Real data analysis obtained from SAVA will be validated through the statistical data by using Statistical Package for the Social Science (SPSS) software. The results on the route of choices and walking speeds were previously various within gender, loading capacity and also peak and non-peak hour consideration. While in this research, gender and peak hour again become the factors that affect Malaysian's walking speeds when using a staircase. Interestingly, the attire worn has also become another factor in this case study. However, it is also found that loading capacity was not a factor that influences Malaysians speed while using a staircase.
