Public symbols are essential components of signage in public transit stations or terminals. Comprehensibility of public symbols directly influences the performance of wayfinding. This study investigated 107 participants with 25 public symbols to understand the effects of travel characteristics and symbol features on comprehension of public symbols. Statistical analysis results showed that travel frequency and meaningfulness of public symbols are significantly associated with comprehension scores. Designing public symbols should be balanced between regulation and localization. Public symbols those are conveying the most meaningful information for wayfinding in transit hubs require further investigation.
