Abstract

The article presents issues concerning rail transport (rail, metro and tramway) and factors influencing the planned implementation of the schedule. At the beginning, the scope of application of the robustness concept was analysed, based on scientific and industry literature. Then the attention was focused on the model of the rail transport system and the schedule, the basic indicator of robustness assessment was discussed, taking into account the methods of analysis used and many variables occurring in rail transport. Finally, a review of the state of knowledge is summarised and the most important observations from the analysis are indicated. In the case of a robust schedule there is no propagation of disruption across the network after an adverse event has occurred.
