Abstract

In the presented paper, authors focus on the issues connected with passenger transportation system vulnerability assessment. Following this, in the article the main transportation system vulnerability definitions are discussed. Later, there is presented the comprehensive literature review connected with assessment methods used in the analysed research area. This gives the possibility to define the public transportation system’s vulnerability assessment as an element of process controlling performed by a carrier. Article ends with some conclusions and directions for future research.
