This work presents indicators for the evaluation of urban spaces elements considering pedestrian and cyclist access to mass transit stations. The indicators are proposed from a literature review and from the result of a survey implemented on two subway stations in Rio de Janeiro. The survey intends to understand the difficulties to access the subway station by bicycle or on foot but it also addresses the subways user profiles. Indicators were selected to represent aspects of the urban environment and infrastructure characteristics of mass transit station access.
