The purpose of this study is to develop a methodology to track the behavior of pedestrians in railway station passenger facilities by utilizing video clips. In order to provide comfortable and user-centered passenger facilities, an understanding of the current behavior of passengers should be prioritized through pedestrian tracking surveys. However, because railway stations become congested in a short amount of time, direct observation in situ with a limited number of researchers is difficult. Thus, utilizing video equipments was developed as a methodology for tracking the behavior of pedestrians in railway passenger facilities. This study developed a method for collecting pedestrian behavior data by utilizing video equipments and tracking pedestrian circulation. The pedestrian tracking survey was conducted using this method and applied in an actual railway station. The derived results identify the use patterns and changes in the railway station and reveal the differences with the current standard.
