INVESTIGATIONS ON THE POSSIBILITIES OF IMPROVEMENT OF THE PUBLIC TRANSIT SERVICE IN BERGISCH GLADBACH UNDER PARTICULAR CONSIDERATION OF AN AGT-SYSTEM

The public transport system in Bergisch-Gladback--as is often the case in communities of this size--needs improving. In order to connect two city-centers an improved bus system and an AGT-system with a shuttle operation are being investigated. Compared with an AGT-system with a double track loop network, this form of single track AGT operation costs approx. 30% less and has fewer negative effects on the townscape. As a result of these advantages future applications of AGT systems are conceivable.
