  “Completing PTC installation and implementation is a key component of Amtrak’s overarching commitment to the safety performance of intercity passenger rail for our customers, employees and the communities we serve,” said Amtrak EVP Chief Safety Officer Steve Predmore.   PTSI Transportation recently enhanced its Compendium of Commuter Rail Fares (CRF), mainly a notification to subscribers of any significant fare changes as soon as PTSI hears of them. This means that subscribers will not have to wait until the quarterly .   Wabtec Transit President Lilian Leroux discusses the global supplier of transit vehicle systems’ role in supporting all forms of passenger rail as a sustainable, safe means of transportation with Railway Age Editor-in-Chief William C. Vantuono.   The solution framework was implemented for a newly conceived intercity transit service in Arizona, and the system performance was studied .

The focus is on safety analysis of passenger transportation process. in the area of transportation system performance measures classification. quality of intercity passenger road.   By conducting a case study in a city of almost , inhabitants from the interior of Rio de Janeiro, an Importance–Satisfaction Analysis (ISA) and an assignment procedure were used in order to obtain: (i) the main factors (criteria) that influence the quality of service intercity road transportation of passengers, (ii) the importance.
