Re: News & Discussion: O-Bahn

Park and ride just pushes the traffic jam back into the suburbs. The area surrounding O-Bahn stops should be transit-oriented developments. This is expensive real estate and car parks are for inexpensive real estate! transforming it into a TOD wouldn't suddenly make everyone who currently uses Para...

Re: Should the O-Bahn be converted to light rail?

Or just have overhead wires with a dedicated grade separated track on the O-Bahn corridor, with rolling stock that can reach higher speeds. The Siemans S70 can reach 100kph

It's more the steep decline required to get under it. Probably a gradient not suitable for a motorway.
