Abstract

International audience; Today, rail stations tend to be considered as nodes but also as places within an area. In this respect, different types of shops and services can be present in rail stations. High Speed Rail services tend to increase the importance of the train station as a place. Our aim is to show that in some cases, some firms extend the role of the station as a place by using high speed train stations to provide temporary offices inside them. Thus the role of the station as a place is transformed in a place to work for mobile workers, a kind of third-place. This is the case of Regus, which is the world's leading provider of flexible workspaces all over the world, supporting over 1 million customers everyday. The objective of this contribution is to identify the characteristics of the clients of the temporary Regus offices in the Naples HSR station and the role of HSR in this context. For this purpose, a recent survey has been employed, interviewing clients using Regus offices. Data concerning the clients have been collected, such as socio-economic characteristics, transport mode chosen to reach Naples and the Regus services used.
