Abstract

With the acceleration of China’s urbanization process, second and third tier cities have gradually joined the planning and construction of urban rail transit. Second and third tier cities are more suitable for the development of medium-traffic rail transit systems. This paper proposes a novel type of medium-traffic urban traffic system, which combines the advantages of rail transit and public buses. It adopts pure electric drive and applies multi-axle active steering technology to provide a fast and flexible way for public transportation in small and medium-sized cities in China. It’s designed to relieve the problem of travel in cities that are increasingly prominent in China.
