RUBBER-TIRED RAPID TRANSIT--1. SYSTEMS CONCEPTS

Rubber-tired transit technology is receiving much attention for application to medium capacity rapid transit systems due to superior traction capability and the potential for reduced noise generation. Data from a worldwide survey identify other surprising benefits. This technology appears to merit inclusion as an alternative in technological assessments for urban rapid transit application. Part I reviews the state-of-the-art in the world today and describes typical system concepts.
