Keywords: BWM method, SWOT, Multi-criteria analysis,Railway transport

Abstract: This paper aims to propose a methodology for assessing the criteria for the effectiveness of transportation of intermodal services “car on the train” named also motorail trains. The motorail trains offer service at which passengers can take their car along with them on their journey. This study proposes a methodology based on the combination of Strengths-Weaknesses-Opportunities-Threats (SWOT) analysis and multi-criteria Best-Worst method (BWM) to evaluate different criteria for assessment the motorail transportation. The methodology of the research includes two steps. The first step includes the SWOT analysis related to passenger railway transport. The sub-criteria for each SWOT group has been defined. A total of 31 sub-criteria are included in this study. The second step includes the determination of the weights of the main criteria and sub-criteria. The BWM method which is based on a linear programming method has been applied.
