The definition of a Dual-Mode Bus System as an attractive alternative for short-distance public transport in medium-sized cities was the starting point for developing electronic and mechanical track-guidance systems for buses. In this report we look back at the objectives set at the beginning and compare them with what has been attained today and planned for the future. A large number of the specified development tragets has been achieved and the many applications speak for the success of the project which has been financed by the German Ministry of Research and Technology. M.A.N. will continue working on developing the Dual-Mode Bus System after the government grant has run out.
