In view of the lack of unified standards for the reliability evaluation of urban rail transit system in China, based on the safety and reliability of system, network theory, fault propagation, operation and maintenance optimization and other related theoretical knowledge, and combined with the actual operation conditions, this paper makes in-depth analysis and research on the safety reliability and availability of urban rail transit operation, a set of evaluation process and method for the reliability and availability of urban rail train system is established. According to the evaluation results, the relevant departments of urban rail train are guided to control or eliminate the possible faults or accidents of the system, predict the future safety conditions, ensure the safety reliability and availability of urban rail train operation, so as to achieve the purpose of reducing accident rate and loss.
