    VEHICLE PRODUCTIVITY IN NEW OPERATED RAIL-SERVICES

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 4, pg(s) 185-187

    For newly introduced transport services, there´s not only the transport aspect that matters what the new service will bring to passengers, but also the operating costs are very important. In this area the systematic timetable planning plays an important role. Total costs of the transport system are significantly affected by the fixed costs, deriving from the number of regular deployed vehicles and drivers, related to the overall transport performance and total operational productivity. Advanced timetable engineering means a strong link between timetables, vehicles and infrastructure. The article demonstrates this approach on the example of the introduction of new express trains Praha – Plzeň – Cheb / München in the timetable 2017/18.

    METHODOLOGY FOR RATING QUALITY STANDARDS IN REGIONAL PASSENGER RAIL TRANSPORT

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 3 (2018), Issue 3, pg(s) 127-130

    Quality has a fundamental influence to the services in passenger transport. The main objective of transport is to satisfy customers’ (passengers’) requirements on the qualitative, flexible, fast and safe carriage of people and goods. Organisers of transport (public authority), providers of transport services and their customers have a different view on the perception of quality. This fact is influenced by unsystematic assessment to the quality measurement as well as by ignorance of the interaction of the transportation the peoples with the transport system. A basic element of transport service is the movement of the rolling stock with the passenger or goods from the start to end destination. In this point of the technological process of transport, the main bearer of the quality of transport services are the vehicles and the transport infrastructure. From the perspective of the vehicle, its operation-technical and utility properties are very important. From the perspective of transport infrastructure, the operating ratios and conditions are important. Due to the content of the quality concept it is not possible to focus only on the interaction of carriage and transport infrastructure. The paper is focussed on the quality evaluation of performance in regional passenger rail transport in relation to other modes of public transport. Hereby it is necessary to know the perception of quality services as well its value for the client (passenger). Consequently it is needed to set a permanent process of quality evaluation of the provided transport services. The paper is based on the premise that the customer interests present the public ordering body (authority) of the public transportation services.

    TECHNOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF EXTENSION OF TRANSPORT OPERATION ON RAIL-LINES IN RECONSTRUCTION

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 5, pg(s) 196-198

    High quality of operational concepts in railway transport represents one of the basic premises of functional public transport system and public transport services. In this area the systematic timetable engineering plays an important role. Advanced timetable engineering brings a strong contribution for an effective use of infrastructure capacity. This systematic approach is very important, especially when the new railway service is being introduced on such railway line, which is in the state of reconstruction with numerous restrictions. The article demonstrates this approach on the example of the introduction of new express trains Prague – Linz in the timetable 2016/17.

    DEVELOPMENT OF INTERMODAL TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS SCHEMES FOR PASSENGER TRANSPORTATION BY RAILWAY TRANSPORT WITHIN UKRAINEEUROPE DIRECTION

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 2 (2017), Issue 2, pg(s) 61-63

    The main issues are considered in this topic: the new logistic schemes for passenger transportation between Europe and Ukraine; the developing an integrated short-term planning system for the purpose of interaction between passengers and carriers; the intermodal transportation of passengers.

  • PROPOSAL MODERNIZATION OF NITRA – LEOPOLDOV TRACK SECTION

    Trans Motauto World, Vol. 1 (2016), Issue 1, pg(s) 33-35

    The development of the regional rail transport requires impulses mainly from the infrastructure manager, in particular structural modifications of tracks. The technical and constructional layout of stations and track sections and its accessories could be change by build-constructional measures. The negative site of it is high costingness and time consuming for realization past normal traffic operation. This paper extends a general overlook on a draft of a modernization of regional lines to ensure required quality in railway transportation. The proposals are applicated for Nitra – Leopoldov track section.

  • TRANSPORT PLANNING ON THE LIBERALIZED MARKET OF PUBLIC SERVICES

    Machines. Technologies. Materials., Vol. 8 (2014), Issue 6, pg(s) 32-36

    The importance of transport planning in public services gradually becomes to be fully appreciated in the context of the Czech Republic. Public transport such as investment and operationally intensive industries require a guaranteed long-term strategy, not only in the field of transport infrastructure, but also in the field of transport services. The first prerequisite for successful transport planning is the most accurate description of passenger flows, including the parameters affecting the choice of transport mode. These inputs are an important basis for additional steps: the creation of a line network, timetable design, creating circulation of vehicles and courses of staff, controlling, and any requests for infrastructure improvements. At the end of this article are referred specific practical examples, where thank to a compliance with the rules of theoretical transport planning it has been achieved the increased operational efficiency of public passenger rail-transport.
