Abstract [en]

In the Swedish Green Train research project, a model for calculation of operational costs has been developed. The model is intended as a tool for making a new high-speed train concept efficient and economically feasible. Some results indicate that seating density, i.e. the number of seats per metre of train length, is one of the most important factors to achieve economic train operation. The load factor needs to be high. However, to select service and comfort levels and other supply factors, travel demand and passengers’ willingness to pay also need to be considered.
