Completely rewritten for usability, the 2003 edition of NFPA 130: Standard for Fixed Guideway Transit and Passenger Rail Systems specifies fire protection and life safety requirements for underground, surface, and elevated fixed guideway transit and passenger rail systems including stations, trainways, vehicles, and vehicle maintenance areas.
Updates to this edition include:
New egress calculation requirements
New requirements for vehicle construction
Performance-based requirements for vehicle design
This document pertains to stations accommodating only passengers and employees of the fixed guideway transit and passenger rail systems and incidental occupancies in the stations. NFPA 130 is up-to-date with NFPA®'s Manual of Style. (Softbound, 47 pp., 2003)
