RegioSeilbahn - Ropeways in regional public passenger transport

Project: Research project

Project Details


Regional public transport is often used to capacity in urban agglomerations but also in rural areas. In many regions, it would be necessary to expand and improve the offer of the classic public transport systems (train, tram, bus) in order to achieve a shift in users and a switch to public transport. However, this is increasingly coming up against limits: Densely built-up areas, topographical conditions, the impossibility of increasing the frequency of services, and the inability to expand the size of vehicles are some of the reasons that often make it impossible to increase capacity. make. In order to enable a high quality of service in the future, the use of alternative public transport infrastructures such as cable cars, which have been in use in the large cities of South America (La Paz, Medellin) for years, is increasingly being discussed. Especially in the central area between the municipalities of the "Speckgürtel" and the city centres, efficient main axes must already be provided for public transport in the future. They must be able to serve a high demand and at the same time be comfortable and fast enough for commuting to work and education, or for leisure traffic. In this context, the spatial separation from individual traffic and the problem-free overcoming of large differences in altitude or other obstacles (rivers, railway lines, etc.) are quite decisive advantages of ropeway systems.
