Compliant public transport node
For the purposes of the Home Quality Mark, a compliant public transport node can includes buses, trams, trains, tubes and other types of public transport, for which, the service stopping at each node must provide transport from, or onward travel to, either an urban centre, major transport node or a community focal point, for example, a doctor's surgery, library, school or village centre. Only local services should be assessed and any national public transport services should be excluded from the analysis, unless such a service can be said to provide a local commuter service.
A compliant urban node includes any bus service with a stop within 400m and any railway station within 800m of the assessed building's main entrance, measured via a safe pedestrian route (not 'as the crow flies').
A compliant rural node includes any bus service with a stop within 800m and any railway station within 1600m of the assessed building's main entrance, measured via a safe pedestrian route (not 'as the crow flies').
