The railway is one of the safest modes of transport all over the world. However, there are safety concerns for pedestrians and other road users as some of these railways can pass through smaller towns. As a potential technological solution, this study utilised a virtual reality (VR) application to train pedestrians on essential safety skills required to cross a level crossing safely. It builds on the previous work to evaluate the user acceptance of an educational VR railway level crossing application utilising the system usability scale (SUS) and sense of presence (SoP) questionnaire. Overall, the SUS score decreases with age, while the sense of presence score increases with age.
