2/13/17 Webinar Webinar on Station-area Planning and Design for High-Speed Rail: Lessons for California and San Jose Diridon
MTI Research Associates Dr. Anastasia Loukaitou-Sideris and Dr. Deike Peters presented findings from their report titled A Comparative Analysis of High-Speed Rail Station Development into Destination and Multi-Use Facilities: The Case of San Jose Diridon. The webinar presenters drew from a detailed review of European case studies of HSR stations, a review of the relevant literature, and interviews with station area planners and designers, to explore issues surrounding HSR station and station-area planning. More specifically, the webinar addressed the following questions:
  • Which factors influence the impact of HSR on station-cities?
  • What are the elements of good station-area planning for HSR stations?
  • What are some common mistakes in designing and planning HSR stations?
  • What lessons do we learn from successful European HSR stations?
  • How do these lessons apply to San Jose Diridon station?
