Abstract

Traffic demands have increased rapidly, and traffic congestion has been raised due to the
urbanization in Seoul. Most of the metro stations of commuting time have a moving speed and a density
corresponding to the E or F grade in LOS(Level of Service). In particular, Jongno-sam-ga Station has a
geometric structure because it is the transfer station of the 3 lines located in the center of Seoul. So the long
transfer distances and the complex transfer system of Jongno-sam-ga Station induce an increment in transfer
time and a decrement in public transportation demands. Therefore, this research was investigated the present
conditions of the movement and transfer path on Jongno-sam-ga Station through a site inspection, and it
presented the improvement plan through the analysis on the movement and transfer path for the general
public, the disabled and the elderly. Based on the results, the improvements of the transfer paths by
separating the moving flow and the transfer paths and applying the transportation vulnerable escalator system
are suggested.
