ThyssenKrupp presents ACCEL, a game-changing transit solution for cities and airports at UITP 2015 in Milan from June 8-10
It is unique; passengers enter walking at a regular speed and get accelerated at high-speeds to the other end. Applying linear motor technology from the Transrapid magnetic train, the ACCEL transportation system will facilitate fast access to metro stations, making it possible to have a station entrance at less than 600 metres from any commuter, attracting up to 30% additional passengers. In airport terminals, ACCEL can cut current transit times between gates by a remarkable two-thirds.
