description
Increasing intermodal and intramodal competition forces railway operators to increase their efficiency and attractivity. A central role is assigned to the rolling stock, since it is a significant part of the cost stucture. On account of the high investment, operation and maintenance costs, the main factor for increasing efficiency is the performance/productivity of the rolling stock. This includes the number of vendible places and the yearly mileage of the rolling stock. The project is based on the hypothesis, that a flexible usage of the rolling stock in long distance traffic can create significant improvements in efficiency and and lead to more economic and competitive rail passenger transportation. New interior design concepts are needeed in order to use passenger coaches in a more flexible way and to garuantee that this fexibility does not interfere with the atractiveness of the vehicles in the diverse market segments.
