Abstract: An important aspect of urban sustainability is concerned with the provision of urban transport systems that are ‘inclusive’ in that they allow full participation in society for older people and people with disa-bilities. Much can be achieved by improving the design of individual aspects of the transport system such as access into public service vehicles, but equally important is the appropriate design of transport inter-changes where crowded situations add an extra dimension to the problems experienced by older and disa-bled people. Simulation of passenger flows is clearly a benefit in this respect but there is a need to under-stand and represent individual human behaviours that together form a dynamic interaction between individuals in crowded spaces. Behaviours have been studied and used in the generation of behavioural rules that have been incorporated in a simulation system based on software originally intended for creat-ing computer games. The simulation has been used to study passenger flows at a major railway station and interchange.
