For reasons of economy, modern passenger trains strive for a maximum number of seats. However, this reduces the size of luggage-storage areas leading to a lower occupancy rate with negative effects on economic efficiency and unnecessarily long passenger exchange times!


Based on meticulous studies of the behaviour of more than 400,000 passengers in passenger carriages, survey of the needs of approx. 60,000 passengers and precise analysis of more than 10,000 pieces of luggage, we have built up a unique level of knowledge that makes it possible to precisely assess and optimise the efficiency of all passenger coaches in local and long-distance traffic.


We check and optimise your vehicle concepts with regard to:
- Arrangement and dimensioning of luggagestorage
- Arrangement of seats, tables etc.
- Dimensioning of aisle widths
- Vehicleoverall concepts

with the objective of the
- Reduction of dwell time and passenger exchange times
- Increase of utilization rate
- Increase in travellersatisfaction
- Increase of security
- Increase of profitability

Furthermore, we also evaluate and optimise your vehicle concepts with regard to accessibility.

TrainOptimizer - The simulation tool for vehicle optimization

With the simulation tool TrainOptimizer you can quickly and easily assess the efficiency of any vehicle layout. Especially for redesign or design of new vehicles, you can compare different layout variants with each other. Output of the simulation will be:
- Passenger exchange time rate
- Actual achievable utilization rate
- Stowability of luggage

Efficiently designed passenger coaches have up to 20% more capacity utilisation compared to vehicles with a maximum number of seats and allow up to 70% shorter dwell times in the stations while at the same time ensuring a high degree of passenger satisfaction. These parameters imply the highest possible efficiency.
