Abstract

The importance of public transportation networks implies the necessity of identifying potential risks that could negatively influence the quality of the services. Public transport networks are very developed in Romania, 22% of the individuals using public transport daily, compared with an average of 16% in the European Union for 2017.

The main objective of the current paper is to present some of the risks to which passengers are exposed along with the effects on the quality of transport services.

Accordingly, the purpose of this article is to present an extensive research of the specialized literature in the field of risks in public transport systems. 

The key findings of this study is the fact that identifying the risks to which passengers are exposed should be one of the priorities for any public transport operator or public administration. All things considered, authorities should ensure a gradual increase in terms of effectiveness and efficiency for the public transport services.

Key words

public transport, risk management, urban life quality, strategies.
