Abstract: Through analyzing the requirements and existing problems in urban planning, this paper investi-gates the suitability and implementation of transportation mandatory requirements in urban planning. Us-ing Ping’ an as an example, the paper points out that the rail transit lines extension requirement for large cities should not be mandatory for urban planning in small-medium cities, and the rail transit route selec-tion should be focused on minor corridors and non-arterial major corridors where the right-of-way is at least 40 meters. Urban planning should consider arterial roadway network rather than all minor and higher grades roadways as the mandatory elements. Because the key element for the layout of transportation termi-nals is land use control, this paper proposes the principles for land use control of transportation terminal. Considering different types of passenger terminals, the land use for passenger terminal can be estimated by the sum of all the land uses. Based on the freight flow logistics and warehouses, and rail and highway freight terminals, the land use for freight terminals can be estimated as well. Finally, the paper illustrates the above suggestions through an urban planning in Ping’an County, Qinghai.
