Abstract: The implementation of an integrated bus/rail station is warmly received by the commuters as it facilitates the transfer from bus to rail and vice versa. The transfer can take place in comfort and convenience, and also the commuters are sheltered from rain and shine. Complaints have, however, been received that the ambient noise level of this type of bus station is higher than the conventional open type bus station. Detailed analysis of the problem shows that the noise effect on the commuters is similar in both types of stations. If account is taken of the difference in the bus circuit of the two stations, the effective difference in ambient noise is about 3 dB(A), which is not very significant. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd.
