Guideline for Assessing New Light-Rail Stops

Working on behalf of the Zürich Transport Authority, EBP is to draft a guideline with relevant criteria for assessing proposed light-rail stops.

Various new stops along the Zürich light-railway network have been suggested in recent years. In the interest of ensuring the application of uniform assessment criteria to all such proposals in the future, an assessment guideline for new light-rail stops has been drafted.

This guideline was created specifically for municipalities and their consultants, and serves the purpose of outlining the criteria that the Zürich Transport Authority (ZVV) can be expected to apply when considering proposed light-rail stops.

The guideline also provides explanations and specifications for ascertaining the relevant parameters for each criterion.
