We are ready to move
trams on the road
As cities continue to grow and the demands placed on urban infrastructure systems expand, new mobility solutions and new vehicle concepts are needed around the world. We see great potential in high-capacity buses – which dramatically expand the limits of traditional urban buses. With a length of more than 30 meters, high-capacity buses can transport as many as 300+ passengers. Indeed, they can best be thought of as trams running on rubber wheels.
Bus or tram - which should it be? Both!
High-capacity buses combine the advantages of both buses and trams in a new type of vehicle. The decisive factor: Unlike classic trams, high-capacity buses do not depend on a transport infrastructure that operates with its own track system. HÜBNER has a technological solution that makes this track infrastructure unnecessary.
With our self-developed steering system, the six or more axles of a high-capacity bus can be intelligently controlled when driving through urban spaces. This is a significant milestone because it allows the vehicles to be driven safely, for example, in BRT (bus rapid transit) systems. At the same time, high-capacity buses with the HÜBNER steering technology provide the same high level of comfort, safety and the sleek design found in trams.
