International rail summit 2016: Big Data and rail

Big Data also enter the railway industry. Board computers, passenger smart cards and cell phones provide valuable data to enhance design of networks and timetables.

It was not common use to consider reliability benefits explicitly, but in this case they were responsible for the positive cost benefit ratio.
