Abstract

The rail industry is faced with rising competitive and cost pressures that call for considerable improvements in consistency, operating efficiency, and rail safety. In this article, Turkey's rail safety was evaluated by using a data envelopment analysis model with CRS (CCR), VRS (BCC) analysis in comparison to the EU countries. A section of input‐oriented analyses was performed, and efficiency scores were ranked in two different ways to verify the different rail parameters with the aim of minimizing the number of rail accidents and the number of fatalities in accidents. The study concluded that Turkey is more capable than the EU countries in terms of exploiting its railway indicators.
