Low-Clearance Rapid Transit

5 steps towards high-performance urban transit at reasonable cost

Step 3: Reduced vehicle height

The LCRT vehicles are constructed for minimum height: the clearance of the underpasses is only about 2,5 m instead of usually about 4 m. This is possible through low-floor tram technology, allocation of technical devices at the ends of the vehicle instead of rooftop equipment and catenary-free operation in the underpass area.
