Poster

The city of Karlsruhe Germany is globally known for its leadership in public transportation, particularly Light Rail Transit (LRT). Where the Region of Waterloo is building the 19km first phase of its LRT project, Karlsruhe operates more than 260km of LRT with 190 stations!

In this presentation, the director of Karlsruhe's transit agency will describe the city's transit system.  Special attention will be paid to the so-called Karlsruhe model - using specially designed trains to operate in both the city centre and at much higher speeds between cities.

PresenterHolger Wagensommer is a Planning/Infrastructure Engineer for Verkehrsbetriebe Karlsruhe and is responsible for the design, planning and project management of railway infrastructure in urban and suburban areas. He has many years of experience in railway infrastructure, designing light rail stops, barrier free stops and stations and designing stations in urban and suburban public transport systems
