  • Why don't you include a stop at the Metro station in between the start and end of the route you want to solve? – PolyGeo Feb 16 '14 at 12:52
  • I suppose that user want to use metero and go to a street and user just use two stops . – BBG_GIS Feb 16 '14 at 12:55

Based on what you said, let's consider that you want to minimize the walking distance from point A to point B. Stated like this, you need to solve your model based on the minimum walking distance, which means that the "cost" of the metro is "zero". This will force network analyst to use metro more often, though you will avoid using metro in trivial cases like if points A and B are 20 m apart and the closest metro station is 40 meters away.

  • Thats right. is that possible to show metero station names in direction window? thnx – BBG_GIS Feb 17 '14 at 14:57
