THE METHOD OF TRAVEL FOR THE DUAL MODE BUS. PARTICULAR ENGINEERING PROBLEMS IN A NEW TRANSPORT SYSTEM

DER FAHRWEG FUER DEN DUAL-MODE-BUS. BESONDERE INGENIEURAUFGABEN BEI EINEM NEUEN VERKEHRSSYSTEM

The dual mode bus can operate in the normal road network and also on rails. When operating within a prescribed rail track, it can be driven either mechanically or electronically. The aims of this new transport system are greater speed, punctuality, increased comfort and economy. Even the construction of the special track, either above the ground or in a tunnel, or even at ground level, is considerably cheaper than for underground railways or even the standard road tramlines. The vehicle is a further development of the standardized types presently used in public transport. Because of the dual drive capability, it can be used both for wide-area coverage and in concentrated regular scheduled systems. It thus unites the advantages of the bus with those of rail-bound public transport vehicles. /TRRL/
