In recent years, attention has been paid to the design of the exterior and interior of railway vehicles, but there are few studies that analyzed user evaluations of vehicles after commercial operation. Therefore, we conducted a focus group survey on "students", "workers" and "elderly people" and created a questionnaire on Commuter train in general based on the opinions received. The target of the survey is a user of the Nishi - Nippon Railroad Tenjin-Omuta Line Ohashi Station, which has many Commuter train and a high congestion rate, and it was judged appropriate as a respondent from the attribute distribution. The 14 survey items on passenger behavior were compiled by dividing passenger attributes (gender, height, and age), and the results were analyzed in association with each user's behavior. We examined from three perspectives: "Ensuring safety when the vehicle started moving", "Considering differences in physical strength and muscle strength", and "Responding to changes in passengers and society", and extracted design issues corresponding to each.
