Abstract: Rail systems have an important place among the types of transportation. Although it was preferred for intercity transportation in the past, but now-a-days it is frequently preferred in urban roads. Some rail system structures move from the ground surface, while others move under the ground. Various geotechnical researches have been carried out for rail systems moving under the ground. However, for the rail vehicles moving on the ground surface are generally placed on the highway route, ground parameters are not taken into consideration. This situation can cause serious rail system accidents. This study has been conducted in Turkey's Erzurum drilling planned light rail system in terms of soil properties, it was evaluated by survey results of drilling borehole, microtremor, and multichannel analysis of surface waves (MASW). According to the results of this study, a part of the light rail system (LRS) route was found to be insufficient in terms of ground safety. For this reason, improvement in the ground or revision of the route has been suggested.
