ABSTRACT

The university campus is a special place for both staff and students. It is the object of many scientific studies. In this publication the author undertakes to study of efficiency of public transport within the university campus. The study includes determining the availability of the university buildings from public transport network. Base for research is spatial data obtained from student’s measurements. The main research method was based on determining the availability of campus buildings on the basis of buffers analysis and network analysis that were based on road and pedestrian network. The study identify supported areas. Various test methods were associated with different results. Evaluations of different methodologies was done by determining the accessibility of campus buildings from bus stops. The results were presented using tabular and statistics data and cartography visualizations. They point out that availability of over 80% campus buildings is connected with walking for 500 meters from bus stops. Detailed analysis shows that public transport does not provide communication within the campus. Urban transport network runs along the edge of the eastern border of the northern parts of campus and in the center of the southern part of the campus. The additional results of network analysis defining student’s traffic in campus during a day, indicate that you should look for alternative transportation within the campus. Ecological bicycle solutions should be considered. It would be desirable to develop a bicycle network on the campus
