To address this problem, the present invention provides a rail transportation system comprising a transportation vehicle which transports passengers, a safety inspection vehicle which travels before the transportation vehicle, and a communication means for providing a connection by which a travel permission signal can be communicated between the transportation vehicle and the safety inspection vehicle, wherein the transportation vehicle is provided with a braking means, and the braking means is actuated if the transportation vehicle does not receive the travel permission signal when a time-out period is exceeded.
