Abstract

 This paper carried out comparative analysis of the status of pedestrian area in city center, the service level of urban rail transit, and the proximity between railway stations and pedestrian area, among Japanese, German and French provincial cities. Our results indicate that Germany and France have more provincial cities that have a high service level of urban rail transit, larger pedestrian areas in their city centers, and closer proximity between railway stations and pedestrian areas than in Japan. After analyzing the relationship between population distribution and the service level of urban rail transit, as well as the proximity between railway stations and pedestrian areas, we clarified that the service level of railways has a relation to the ratio of population concentration around stations in city centers. Finally, population density around railway stations is higher in city than in suburban areas.
