The trans European railway network : three levels of services for the passengers
Milan Janić, 1996, original scientific article

Abstract: The paper deals with the concept, analysis and measuring of the quality of services offered by the Trans European Railway Network (TERN). A sub-network serving the passengers travelling over the EU (European Union) and some of the non-EU regions are considered. Two sets of network attributes influencing the quality of services are analysed. One set of network physical attributes is represented by the length of the rail lines connecting specific origins and destinations of the passengers. The other set is represented by the time-based attributes used to measure the quality of services offered to the users. These are: travel speeds along particular lines (routes), and how the passenger's schedule delays depend on the train frequencies (e.g. number of trains offered on particular routes of the network in a given period of time). Considered as a common entity these attributes significantly influence the average passenger's travel time (and speed) which, together with out-of-pocket cost paid for travel, have appeared to be the most important criteria influencing the choice of transport mode.
