Abstract One of the key outcomes of the smart transportation is to ensure such services deliver smarter journeys for the train commuters. Commonly, such strategy includes the exploitation of Automatic Train Operation (ATO) schemes. Due to its comprehensive system integration, the Grade of Automation 4 (GoA4) provides the most optimized transportation solution for cities. An efficient GoA4 would also reduce the traffic congestion through greater flexibility in operations, and the improvement of the overall mobility via rapid and efficient operations. Nevertheless, such rapid and efficient transport systems are key aspects of superior urban mobility. Accordingly, the main purpose of the paper is to examine the performance of the four GoA4 (SkyTrain, Link Train, Nippori-Toneir Liner and AirTrain) by comparing and contrasting the characteristics of their separate systems. These four case studies were carefully selected since all are similar in complexity and provide a recommendation for the most influential factors to be used in measuring superior urban mobility.
