IUMO x CR 2 Study

Next Generation of Public Transport

PLP Labs has conducted a long-running study on IUMO (Integrated Urban Mobility) with input from experts at the Transport Systems and Logistics Laboratory and Reed Mobility with support from Epic Games Mega Grant, to reimagine Crossrail 2. The project envisions the next generation of public transport by replacing conventional trains with high-speed platoons of shared Autonomous Electric Vehicles (AEVs) running in a single Crossrail tunnel.
