thyssenkrupp analysis shows that people at a distance of more than 500 meters from a metro station usually opt for other means of transport, despite the possibility of heavy traffic jams or significantly higher costs. Filling this gap in the transport landscape, ACCEL offers a cost effective solution to improve the reach of metro stations and increase network connectivity without the need for major infrastructural or civil works, in addition to attracting 30% additional passengers to a more environmentally friendly mode of transport.
Reducing trip times. Express metro lines can be built using ACCEL, reducing the number of stops for metro systems, and keeping or even increasing accessibility for passengers. The Fast Track concept will make Public Transport more attractive.
A significant factor in
smoother operations at airports
In airports, ACCEL is capable of improving airport traffic flow. Some of the most recent expansions at large airport hubs have significantly increased distances between gates, making transit difficult for some passengers, especially the elderly and those travelling with children. The increased distances also prove to be a major issue when there are last-minute gate changes or long lines to complete pre-boarding formalities, often resulting in some passengers missing their flights altogether.

ACCEL avoids the need for setting up stations and waiting areas as those needed for APM or shuttle buses. Besides, it does not require any independent control.
Improving public transport
More efficient Metro systems with increased accessibility and faster trips for passengers.
Reduced life cycle costs
Easy to maintain, with a lower initial investment.
