Due to extensive use of private cars, cities are facing negative social and environmental impacts such as including poor air quality, noise, health issues, and low quality of the built environment. Responding to these urgent challenges, some metropolitan areas are building new metro lines and stations. Certain studies demonstrate that some factors of the station's catchment areas may influence public transport use. Starting from this premise, this chapter applies a cluster analysis with the aim of understanding and classifying station areas. In details, the contribution proposes (i) a literature review on indicators used for station areas analysis; and (ii) a method to identify station areas typologies. The study proposes an application at the sixty-two rail stations of the city of Naples, where several interventions have been recently carried out on the urban rail network and in station areas, within an integrated land-use and transport planning approach.
