TRACK-SHARING FOR URBAN TRANSPORTATION

The potential use of railway tracks is discussed for passenger movements to the center city. Examination is made of the implications of instituting such service either by dual-mode railbus or by conventional rail equipment. The substantial vehicle development in railbuses is also reviewed. A simple inexpensive railing system, adaptable to any standard bus without major modification of the vehicle, can be installed in the shop of the bus company. The railbus concept is drawing increased attention from both national and international transportation planners.
