A CRITICAL CONSIDERATION OF NEW TYPES OF SHORT-DISTANCE TRANSPORT SYSTEMS

NEUE MAHVERKEHRSSYSTEME- KRITISCHE BETRACHTUNGEN AUS DER SICHT EINER GROSSTGDT

The author lists the requirements of attractive short distance public transport systems: short journey times, direct connections with a minimum number of changes, a dense network, punctual and frequent services, comfort, safety, and reasonable fares. He points out that there has been a marked increase in the provision of underground railway and rapid transit systems during the last decade. New systems such as personal transit, tracked air cushion vehicles and magnetic levitation systems are briefly considered. The need for further basis research into the feasibility of these systems is stressed. /TRRL/
