  • Abstract:
    The ability to perform activities such as reading, writing, talking, and sleeping has frequently been cited in the ride quality literature as an important factor in passengers' comfort and satisfaction with transportation systems. A field study of passenger activities on intercity trains was conducted to quantify and describe the relationships between the relative frequencies of various passenger behaviors and the physical parameters of ride quality. Vibration in six degrees of freedom, acoustic noise, temperature, relative humidity and illumination were measured while simultaneous observations of passenger activity were made aboard 77 Amtrak vehicles on 14 trains between Newark, NJ and Washington, DC.
