Abstract: Seamless connection has become a consensus to reduce separation between travel modes and the resulting negative impacts at passenger transport terminals. However, there is still disagreement on what is and how to realize seamless transfer. This paper first analyzes the three major functionalities of passenger transport terminals, including transfer connection, traffic organization, and land development guidance. It emphasizes the importance of transfer and connection. By analyzing the idea of seamless connection, the paper points out that the objective of seamless transfer is to achieve the lowest comprehensive system cost including transfer distance, service, time, and fare. Toward the main problems existing in comprehensive terminals, rail transit terminals, bus terminals, and park-and-ride facilities, the paper provides suggestions on enhancing transfer and connection functionalities.
