APTA statistical products serve as the definitive resource for industry statistics, primarily the annual Fact Book. The Fact Book provides a wide range of data for all public transportation systems, including those that do not report to the National Transit Database. Effective railway systems for India's growing future , PM IST. In the next five years, Indian railway market will be the 3rd largest, accounting to 10% of the global market and Metro rail is going to be 70% of the railway market in India.
US Railroad Efficiency: A Brief Economic Overview By Gerard J. McCullough, Ph.D. Department of Applied Economics University of Minnesota The focus of U.S. transportation policy in the 19th and 20th centuries was on extending the benefits of transportation to more locales and to more Size: KB. Efficiency Measures and Output Specification: The Case of European Railways. Pedro Cantos*, Jos M. Pastor, and Lorenzo Serrano Universidad de Valencia. Abstract. This study analyzes the sensitivity of the efficiency indicators of a sample of European railway companies to different alternatives in .

The main results, based on the analysis of panel data in the second stage reveal that; the introduction of competition within the sector (in both passenger and freight markets) has had a positive impact in the efficiency.

Indicators of passenger transport by railway in â€“ Indicators Total passengers, millions of which: internal, international Passenger circulation, millions of passengers per km Cited by: Railway efficiency is a topic of interest worldwide for railway managers operating in competitive markets and for fiscally strained governments.
Several recent studies indicate that European railways differ in terms of their efficiency. Based on a comparison with some major non-European railway systems, our analysis provides further evidence.
ECONOMIC EFFICIENCY OF RAILWAYS AND IMPLICATIONS FOR PUBLIC POLICY: A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE OECD COUNTRIES' RAILWAYS. IN: RAILWAYS. This paper analyzes the efficiency of passenger railway systems in 19 OECD countries to identify the effects of both public subsidies and degree of managerial autonomy on productive efficiency.
The European Railway Performance Index Ap By Sylvain Duranton, Agnès Audier, Joël Hazan, Mads Peter Langhorn, and Vincent Gauche Europe’s national railway systems continue to face the challenge of maintaining high performance in an era of austerity.
The energy efficiency in transport is the useful travelled distance, of passengers, goods or any type of load; divided by the total energy put into the transport propulsion means.
The energy input might be rendered in several different types depending on the type of propulsion, and normally such energy is presented in liquid fuels, electrical energy or food energy. Energy Consumption of Track-Based High-Speed Transportation Systems: Maglev Technologies in Comparison with Steel-Wheel-Rail Book November with 6, Reads How we measure 'reads'.
34 Comparison of Passenger Rail Energy Consumption with Competing Modes passenger-mile while several systems operate in excess of 3, Btu per passenger-mile. Less variation is seen in the energy intensity per seat-mile, as this metric is independent of load factor and provides a better measure of the actual efficiency of the equipment.
TRB’s National Cooperative Rail Research Program (NCRRP) Report 3: Comparison of Passenger Rail Energy Consumption with Competing Modes provides tools that can be used to compare energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of intercity and commuter passenger rail with those of competing travel modes along a designated travel corridor.
The statistics published by English railway companies he found were scarce and vague, affording no means of international comparison (p). Of particular significance we may find his calculations of differences in costs arising from an approximately uniform distribution to vehicles, and by a detailed apportionment of each variable expense to.
Being a safe, energy efficient and sustainable mode of transportation, railways play a significant role in moving passengers worldwide. As shown in Table 1, more than 30 billion passengers travel by trains per year globally ().Providing good services to such a huge number of customers in a timely and cost effective manner has been a concern for policy makers and by: 5.
A GLOBAL VISION FOR RAILWAY DEVELOPMENT 3. RAILWAY MARKET SEGMENTS AND THEIR FUTURE TRENDS AND CHALLENGES PASSENGERS The passenger rail service deals with differ-ent categories of customers through specifi-cally designed services.
The various passen-ger rail market segments depend mainly on the distance travelled – long, medium andFile Size: 2MB. Page - Upon this platform rails are laid, on which the waggons which bear the passengers' luggage and other matters of light and rapid transport are rolled directly upon the upper deck of the ferry-boat, the passengers meanwhile passing under a covered way to the lower deck.
The whole operation is accomplished in five minutes. While the boat is crossing the spacious river, the passengers. of litres per passenger-km or 67 passenger-miles per US gallon. The next generation aircraft (A & B) are targeting an efficiency of less than 3 litres per passenger-km or 78 passenger-miles per US gallon5, which exceeds the efficiency of any modern compact car on the market.
Air transport provides vital economic benefits. The Economist offers authoritative insight and opinion on international news, politics, business, finance, science, technology and the connections between them. The common image of a railway accident is of a multi-fatality train collision or derailment, but most railway casualties are more mundane.

This paper considers railway operations in 23 European countries during –, where a series of reform initiatives were launched by the European Commission, and analyses whether these reform initiatives improved the efficiency of the railway systems.
Efficiency is measured using Multi-directional Efficiency Analysis, which enables investigation of how railway reforms affect the Cited by: Methods of Analyzing and Comparing Energy Efficiency of Passenger Rail Systems.
Because of growing concerns about the future environmental impact of passenger travel, modal energy efficiency is becoming increasingly important when benefits and costs of transportation system investment are evaluated. (MOR) for support of railway passenger and freight policy reform.
The fact-finding mission visited the PRC in Octoberand reached an understanding with the Government on the TA’s objectives, scope, terms of reference, cost estimates, financing plan, and implementation arrangements.
Rail transport (also known as train transport) is a means of transferring passengers and goods on wheeled vehicles running on rails, which are located on contrast to road transport, where vehicles run on a prepared flat surface, rail vehicles (rolling stock) are directionally guided by the tracks on which they usually consist of steel rails, installed on ties (sleepers.
