The article presents the results of the first period of a research carried out at The Czech Technical University in Prague, Faculty of Transportation Sciences, which is aimed to set the optimal dimensions of waiting areas in the premises of public mass transport change nodes. It is aimed especially at a structure of passengers using public transport expressing the percentage of each of the groups for which different areal demands are characteristic. Such survey has not been carried out in the Czech Republic so far. Application of the research, of which the first outputs are presented in this article, allows us to upgrade an outdated methodology for setting an appropriate dimensions of public parts of railway station buildings, which is still used in the Czech Republic.
