 Abstract
This paper presents how LOS (Level of Service) of connectivity at railway stations is developed. Based on interview surveys to railway users at 56 railway stations, the catchment areas for railway is defined and MOE (Measures of Effectiveness) is also developed. The MOE is determined to be the weighted access time (min) and LOS "D" was set up between 45 mins and 60 mins. The 56 railway stations is evaluated based on this MOE and most of them is found to be below LOS "E". Finally some guideline for improving the LOS of accessibility. They are an expansions of accessibility facility, an expansion of bus route, an improvement of congestion roads, and expansions of parking lots for automobile users.
