Rail transportation is vital to the economy of a country, but as with any mode of transport, also have the attendant risks. In particular, train accidents pose safety risks to both public and the railroads, so effective accident prevention practices is a key element of its risk management practices. Therefore, the implementing standard of safety for rail is needed to ensure the safe carrying out of railway operations. Different standards have different ranged of application and different legal force behind them. The main purpose of the standards mainly is to provide the most cost-effective, efficient and compatible means of rail system delivery, while providing a safe railway.
For instances, standard of rail safety in Canada is to achieving

However, given the other modes of transport are seeking to improve higher energy efficiency and achieve better environmental performance, as well as a steady increase in energy costs competitive environment, reduce energy consumption seems to be holding the key to urban rail transport its position is the most economical and sustainable means of transport. Different technologies and strategies must be conduct for the regenerative energy recovery through regenerative braking capability to increase energy-efficiency of urban rails, and decrease the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions release at power plants have been performed in recent years (González-Gil A., Palacin R., Batty P., and Powell J. …show more content…
Under the user category, its including speed, reliability, comfort, convenience, safety, special services and innovations. For the non-user category, which is consists of system efficiency, pollution and demand. Besides, service quality for public transport industry as the measures of accessibility, reliability, comfort, convenience and safety (Silcock, 1981). Traditionally, the public transport sector performance indicators divided into two categories which is efficiency and effectiveness. In the context of efficiency measures with the processes that produce the services while the measures in the effectiveness is used to determine the effectiveness of the services provided with respect to objective they sets (Pullen, 1993).
Moreover, Quality of service is also can be considered as performance indicators under the effectiveness category. It consists of accessibility, reliability, comfort, convenience and safety. Passenger's waiting time, lost mileage and characteristics of each journey mode (time of arrival, time spend, time of arrival at the destination) are commonly used measures quality of service for the industry (Pullen,
