SynArea - Synergetic area covering with public transport and short distance individual transport

Project: Research project

Project Details


The aim of the project is the coverage of rural and/or suburban regions with multimodal
services, which are more attractive for customers and economically more efficient than
conventional public transport, accessed by foot, bike & ride or park & ride, and at the same
time ecologically and socially more sustainable, than the sole use of motorised individual
transport. The proposed solution, which shall be examined during the project in terms of
technical and economical feasibility, is based on a new vehicle type for individual road
transport, which are designed for a range of 5-15 km and synergetical use for wide target
groups, and a reorganisation of the conventional, scheduled public transport: With a lower
density of lines and stops, there can be provided shorter intervals and riding times as well as
better interconnections.
