    The initial situation

    The expected traffic growth in public transport in the city of Frankfurt requires a capacity expansion also in the surface transportation systems.

    Frankfurt am Main is a dynamically growing city in the heart of the Rhine-Main region. The associated growth in traffic will lead to a significant increase in the number of passengers using public transport. As today’s services are already often operating at their performance limits, capacities must also be expanded on the surface. In this context, the focus is on the tramway system, since the tramway has a high capacity compared to the bus. The capacity expansion can be achieved in different ways. Typically, through larger vehicles or by increasing the frequency of service.

    Dynamically growing cities require new answers to traffic development.

    The concrete task

    Investigation of a total of 4 variants for increasing the available space capacities in Frankfurt’s tram network.

    Our solution

    Development of an economic evaluation module to determine the cost and revenue effects of the different strategy alternatives

    Benefits of the results

    Systematic comparison of the alternatives of the Frankfurt tram strategy has been made possible
