The tram-train: State of the art
Abstract In response to the demand for improved mobility in metropolitan areas, the 1990s saw the development in Europe of a new transport system known as the tram-train. This system is based on theExpand
1 Overhead wires free light rail systems
Light rail systems are experiencing a revival in several countries in the world. Nevertheless, they are facing a more and more demanding market which implies continuous new evolutions andExpand
Madrid tram-train feasibility study conclusions
Abstract The tram-train concept consists of the operation of a light rail system that can run either on existing or new tramway tracks, or on existing railway tracks, so that the services of urbanExpand
Tram-Train: New Public Transport System
In response to the demand for improved mobility in metropolitan areas, the 1990s saw the development of a new transport system in Europe known as the tram-train. This system is based on usingExpand
Light Rail Systems Free of Overhead Wires
Light rail systems are experiencing a revival in several countries in the world. Nevertheless, light rail systems are facing a more demanding market and by implication the need for continuousExpand
Impact on City Bus Transit Services of the COVID–19 Lockdown and Return to the New Normal: The Case of A Coruña (Spain)
TLDR
The impact on transit ridership during the lockdown process was more significant than that on general traffic, and in the new normal situation, the general traffic and the shared bike system recovered a higher percentage of their previous use than the bus system. Expand
Turf Track for Light Rail Systems
Light rail systems are experiencing a revival in several countries. In many new and refurbished networks, turf—or grass—tracks are being used as a means to get a reserved right-of-way that entailsExpand
Influence of the weather on mode choice in corridors with time-varying congestion: a mixed data study
TLDR
This paper aims to analyse the influence of weather and the density of traffic on the choice of transport mode and discusses how the selection of different alternative specific constants in models estimated using mixed data could generate unrealistic forecasting results if environmental changes are expected in the actual market.

Use of a genetic algorithm to optimize wheel profile geometry
Abstract Wear is a very important subject for railway administrations. Therefore, it would be of interest to develop a methodology for designing wheel profile geometry in order to improve itsExpand
