BREEAM Public Transport Accessibility
 Aim and benefits
To recognise projects where the proximity of good public transport networks has been reviewed, and encourage the implementation of alternative transport solutions where proximity to public transport networks is poor; thus helping to reduce transport - related pollution and congestion.
If the assessed building is in London then Transport for London's Public Transport Accessibility Level (PTAL) can be used otherwise the average number of services has to be calculated and entered into the Tra 01 calculator tool. For the purpose of the calculation, the frequency of public transport is the average number of stopping services at the node during the peak arrival/departure times for the building or the building's typical day's operating hours, divided by the number of hours within that period.
