Stations and intermodal terminals are more than just interconnections. They are meeting places that provide retail and catering experiences.
The rise of urban populations has put increasing pressure on transit systems all around the world. In this context, intermodal terminals have become vital because they serve as interconnecting hubs and allow passengers to change transportation modes in their transit. Integrating information technology improves station communication capabilities, ticketing and wayfinding. Furthermore, station operators can manage passenger flows and safety by taking preventive crowd control measures.
Smart and sustainable interchanges
Transport interchanges are essential and vital hubs. We believe the next generation of station design will harness the power of digital technology and limit impact on the natural environment.
Thanks to these technologies, station operators can manage passenger flows and prepare for critical events by taking a system view to reduce peaks and prevent crowd control issues. Furthermore, we believe that redevelopment and expansion plans must address their high-energy demand and extensive carbon footprint.
WSP provides innovative solutions that satisfy all end-user requirements, without compromising value, quality or sustainability. Transbay Transit Center in the US, the future northern terminal for the high-speed rail line in San Francisco, will be one of the most energy-efficient buildings on the West Coast with a LEED Gold rating.
We focus on maximizing the potential of station assets to improve passenger satisfaction and create opportunities to generate income, while minimizing maintenance and streamlining ongoing asset management. Finally, BIM technology provides clients with an ultimate tool to operate and maintain the asset.
