Recently, the "ride comfort" problem becomes increasingly important because of today′s needs for train speedup. The concept of term "ride comfort" is equivocal. Generally it is defined as the vehicle vibration. There are many studies on evaluation method of ride comfort for railway. But each of them recommends the different assessment method and the different guidance. So users must review whether they can apply it to their system or not. In general, the evaluation methods defined in the standards - ISO 2631, UIC 513 R, and Ride Index suggested by Sporting - have been used in the railroad. The ride comfort measuring system according to the previous mentioned evaluation methods "ride comfort" has developed, verified and utilized in the railways.
