Abstract [en]

The aim of the study was to identify the passengers' perceptions of railway safety, with emphasis on the internal safety and potential safety improvements. Train passengers (n=243) in Sweden were surveyed and data were analyzed with descriptive and bi-variate statistics. Results showed that only 40% judged the internal train safety as safe. Closed luggage racks and more space for luggage were the most acceptable changes. Both regarding internal safety and acceptable safety changes there were significant differences between high-and low-frequency travelers, with more seasoned travelers less worried about safety and less excepting of additional safety features and costs. The conclusion was that high-frequency and low-frequency travelers differ in their perceptions of safety and that acceptability of safety features followed the perceived effects on comfort.
