Railway transport plays a significant role in the transportation of passengers with various types of connections, which is the basis for the relevance of the research of such transportation. The article deals with forecasting the volume of railway passenger transportation, forecasting the high-speed railway passenger flow and volume of transportation in the medium-term and long-term plan of the high-speed railway network, forecasting the railway passenger transportation based on seasonal decomposition and the model, forecasting the volume of passenger traffic for the newly built high-speed railway in the transport corridor. It is considered that the difference in train travel distances can become a theoretical basis for optimizing the parameters of the arrival of passengers by railway. Also, the issue of the general structure for an intelligent railway passenger station is described. The paper examines the existing calculation methods, which include the collected coefficients method, the graph and train number method of the one-way method, the probabilistic method, the worst-case method and the simulation method, and also gives the proposed value of their parameters. Model of coordination between high-speed rail lines and conventional rail lines in a rail passenger transport corridor. It is stated that a rational scheme of transport cooperation can improve the use of railway capacities, the speed of train movement, the quality of service and the organization of railway transport. The influence of factors and trends in the growth of the volume of shipments by urban railway passengers was analyzed, various effects and correlations of socio-economic variables and factors of the supply of railway transport for different cities were identified.
