Abstract

Walking is an important connection in Transportation Oriented Development (TOD). An evaluation of Walking-Friendliness of a Subway Station is constructed from safety, comfort and convenience. Based on Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to an Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) and Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), the specific meaning, calculation method and weight of each index are given. Then, the standards are put forward for classification of Walking-Friendliness and construct of the AHP-TOPSIS mode. A quartile graph is constructed combining the importance and evaluation score of nine indicators. 66 roads within an 800-meter-area of Dawanglu Station are analyzed, and the results show that AHP-TOPSIS method can meet the actual needs of the Walking-Friendliness evaluation of a Subway Station where it overcomes the shortcomings of single-perspective researches from three aspects of nine indicators, and can provide targeted improvement measures to enhance walking-friendliness, and has a certain reference value for guiding the development of TOD.
