We review recent studies on transportation network performance under perturbations. Three representative concepts relating to network performance are covered: reliability, vulnerability, and resilience. With an overview of the definitions and the quantitative indices of these three concepts, we analyse and compare their similarities and differences in the context of transportation. These concepts differ from each other in terms of focus, measurement, and application scenario. Numerical examples are conducted to assess these concepts under different perturbation scenarios. The results indicate their rationale in reflecting network performance under perturbations, yet their outputs differ. Moreover, the relationship among the three concepts is intuitively illustrated by the analysis results.
