This study This study aims to identify sound developmental directions for transit-oriented development (TOD), which is a topic of interest in the field of urban development, and conducts an empirical analysis of station influence areas within Seoul according to the characteristics of transit types. The results suggest that there are differences among variables that influence demand for public transportation according to transit types. This means that it is necessary to identify improvement plans in developing public transport strategies for the capital region based on such differentiated influence factors and to build foundations to continue to increase demand for public transportation. Also, station influence areas should be developed into hubs by establishing appropriate bus-only lane networks as a supplementary means, rather than directly connecting subway stations with each other.
