Abstract: Subway station rehabilitation / renovation projects are among the projects with special needs in which a variety of stakeholders including the Department of Transportation (DOT), Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Department of Historic Resources (DHR), utility companies, and public communities are usually involved. Some of these projects interfere with daily operations at stations; therefore, execution strategies such as diverting trains and working in confined spaces are required for successful completion of these projects. Execution of these strategies usually requires proper management of project-specific constraints, assumptions, and objectives.

This paper aims to understand key characteristics of subway station projects to systematically identify planning and scheduling requirements for these projects. For this purpose, a variety of subway transit projects will be investigated to identify common elements, i.e. project deliverable, functions, and trades involved in these projects. The results of this study will help construction professionals in the subway industry produce more accurate project schedules, and be able to manage project schedule risks in more effective ways.
