This paper presents an overview of the tram safety in the city of Constantine. The objective of this work is to contribute to the improvement of railway safety of a new urban transport mode in Algeria, whose safety culture is absent in the behaviour of citizens, in the face of major risks linked to the operating of Constantine’s tram. In this context this article focuses on four parts: safety and risk management, railway risks, analysis of accidents, safety system and human factors (tram driver). This paper discusses the main issues, challenges and future directions of public transportation safety on these themes.
