Abstract—This study reviews some of the most crucial rail transportation patronage for Sydney, Australia. Specifically, Sydney's transportation patronage and their associated communities are analyzed for a variety of demographic and population complexities. Sydney has a high population density and other issues which complicate the city’s ability to provide satisfactory patronage. Although surface issues appear as late trains and significant network disruptions, a greater area of concern is the challenge encountered in communications system. This paper will investigate key communication system dynamics that relates to three specific requirements. These are a) exact incident detection and communique, b) precise reliability and c) efficiency. The dynamics forms the backbone of Sydney's rail transportation infrastructure. Due to its great size and system challenges, meeting these measures can allow Sydney's ridership issues to be further assessed and mitigated. Subsequently, this can lead to creation of frameworks and strategies to better plan and manage rail transportation infrastructure.
