Note: In addition to the KPIs mentioned above, a system for planning passenger rail operations can bring various qualitative benefits such as better visibility of the plan to all stakeholders (including unions). This can lead to fewer disputes and more constructive discussions, as well as a way to manage the robustness of the plan and balance it against the efficiency of the plan.
