Interregional network

The interregional network is the current rail network. After all, we already have a good, albeit somewhat complex rail network. Therefore, it will be simplified to 16 corridors. Fewer switches result in less technical failures. The corridor system makes for a robust timetable. The trains shuttle back and forth within the same corridor, preventing problems to affect the larger network. In the long term bottlenecks will be removed to enable fast and frequent service.

One type of rolling stock with uniform doorways and placement serves each corridor. The key objective of the design is to offer accessibility and attractiveness for a large group of travelers. Special attention is given to the ability to carry a folding bike and allow independent access for users of wheelchairs or mobility scooters. Hence the trains have level access.
The storage room is also convenient for travelers with large suitcases. The upper deck has couches where one can talk.
