WHAT IS AUTOTREN?
Autotrén is a rapid transit system based on GRT (Group Rapid Transit) technology that offers agile and sustainable mobility, particularly for congested urban corridors and medium sized cities.
It uses a fleet of very light, electric, driverless trains. Each train has 1 to 4 vehicles, each seating 6 or 8 passengers, for a total of up to 24 or 32 passengers per train depending on the vehicle model. The trains travel on an exclusive guideway network, usually elevated or underground. Track width is half the width of a bus lane or conventional train track. Passenger stations are modular, small-footprint buildings. Service is optionally driven by demand, by fixed schedules and routes, or a combination of both. The system achieves high capacity and very high service levels at low cost through intelligent passenger grouping and continuous flows of people and vehicles.
HOW IT WORKS?
See the video! Before boarding, passengers select their destination at self-service kiosks or at an app. The system continuously groups passengers so that all passengers in one train share the same destination (or group of destinations). In this way, trains can make express trips without having to make unnecessary intermediate stops. All passenger stations are located on “off-line” tracks so that traffic flow on the main tracks never stops. Thanks to the state-of-the art control system, trains on the main tracks can travel at very small separations (headways), as low as a few seconds.
Users enjoy guaranteed seat and express travel in a post-Covid19 healthy public transport.
All this at public transport fares!
Governments are widely recognized for improving urban mobility, making rational use of public money, and taking action to mitigate climate change.
Transit operators maintain and even expand their business by attracting new users.
Private investors find public-private partnerships opportunities enhanced by Autotrén.
Autotrén is typically implemented within the framework of a public transportation reform in developing countries, in which highly pulverized bus concessions (with little accountability and poor service) are replaced with formal route concessions (with more accountability and higher service levels), as well as «complete street» transformations that allocate more space for pedestrians and bikers, not just cars.
STREETS DOMINATED BY VEHICLES
Autotrén enhances the public transport reform in those corridors where BRT and subway are not viable, and replaces polluting combustion vehicles with electric vehicles.
In addition to providing fast and quality public transport, thanks to its segregated infrastructure, Autotrén catalyzes complete streets transformations, giving priority to pedestrians and cyclists at street level.
