Current trend shows there is an exponential increase in rail traffic passenger volume in Malaysia, causing authorities to be aware in improving the pedestrians' facilities and safety. Kuala Lumpur Sentral Station (KLSS) is the largest transportation hub in Malaysia and, as of May 2017, the user reaches up to 180,000 users daily. In this contribution, a theoretical framework is presented to understand the pedestrians' behaviour attributes at rail transit terminal based on pedestrians' spatial interactions. The Distinct Element Method (DEM) will be employed to model the dynamics of pedestrian's crowd behaviour. The validated crowd dynamics model will be demonstrated in evacuation capacity estimation in KLSS. Evacuating people quickly and safely can greatly reduce casualty and economic losses. As for this contribution, more concern is on the spatial interaction of pedestrian at the RTT and the proposed framework. This framework paper will describe the flow in details on conducting the study of spatial intersection.
