RUBBER TYRED METRO


INTRODUCTION

A Rubber-tyred metro is a form of rapid transit system that uses a mix of road and rail technology.
In this the vehicles have wheels with rubber tyres like a bus, but using a set of two parallel concrete or corrugated steel rollways, each with the width of a tyre.
The vehicles have wheels with rubber tyres which run inside a guide way for traction, as well as traditional railway steel wheels with flanges on steel tracks for guidance.

HISTORY

Rubber-tyred Metros were first invented by the Regie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP)?
Rubber-tyred metro technology was first applied to the Paris Metro, developed by Michelin
The first completely rubber-tyred metro system was built in Montréal, Canada

ADVANTAGES

Smooth ride (with little "jostling" around)?
Faster acceleration
Shorter braking distances, allowing trains to be signalled closer together
The ability to climb or descend steeper slopes (~gradient 13%) than would be feasible with conventional rail tracks.
Quiet ride in open air (for residents and those outside the train)?

DISADVANTAGES

Higher energy consumption than steel-on-steel
A larger quantity of excess heat is generated
Expensive to build, install and maintain.

CONCLUSION

Todayâ„¢s busy life, people have not enough time to spend for traveling. So ordinary trains with less speed is not feasible. But rapid transit systems with rubber tyres can reduce the time that taken for traveling. The rubber tyred metro has many advantages over steel wheel on steel rail.
It is expensive but the advantages over rule the cost.
It has faster acceleration
It provides shorter braking distances than ordinary steel on steel rail.
It has the ability to climb or descend steeper slopes.
So the rubber tyres improves the rapid transit system.
