New methods are developed to measure the extent to which rail passengers, especially those with functional limitations, can access transport systems as a part of the whole trip. Measurement with persons is central in determining interdisciplinary commonalities and differences in (i) terminology; (ii) measurement methods; (iii) measurement uncertainty, and (iv) decision making. Metrological concepts are adapted in novel ways to be able to measure the constructs accessibility and usability in railway transport systems for travelers with and without functional limitations. A multiplicative accessibility measure is defined that represents the different barriers persons can face when travelling. Our first action concerns the measurement of measure improvement actions to the railway system and travel.
