The Transport System Bögl convinces with flexible routing possibilities as well with its high speed in the study “Innovative means of transport for the district of Dachau”.
Already since mid-2019 the professorship for traffic engineering of the University of the Federal Armed Forces has been working together with the district of Dachau on a comprehensive research project on the use of innovative means of transport in the district of Dachau. In February 2020, the results were presented to numerous representatives from politics and business.
In the form of a comprehensive survey of citizens with more than 3,400 responses, the study identified the need for three concrete project potentials in the district of Dachau, Germany. The survey focused on the willingness of citizens to switch to one of five available means of transport instead of the car. The magnetic levitation train TSB stood out from the listed transport systems due to its maximum speed of 150 km/h and the quiet transport of large crowds of people. A possible track between Munich-Pasing and Augsburg/Gersthofen along the A8 motorway was rated particularly attractive by the respondents. With a 53 km long connection between Augsburg and Munich it would be possible to connect various municipalities to the public transport network and relieve commuter traffic on the busy A8.
The realization of such projects requires means of transport that can be easily integrated into existing infrastructures and thus use existing transport corridors even more efficiently.
