La Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeoise (CTS) expérimente jusqu’au 21 décembre 2018 un véhicule Cristal de Lohr composé de deux modules attelés. En janvier 2019, elle le testera à la fois en version attelé en heure de pointe et en mode simple en heures creuses.
Cristal, Lohr’s electric vehicle, will be test run on Line 10 of Strasbourg’s public transport network (CTS) from 3 to 21 December. It will supplement the existing service, running two cars coupled together, each carrying up to 16 passengers. Users will be able to travel onboard the vehicle with a standard ticket or travel pass.
Handling city traffic, crossroads and roundabouts is the objective set by the manufacturer Lohr and its partner, the transport operator Transdev, for the new i-Cristal autonomous shuttle. This vehicle, showcased at the InnoTrans trade fair, will shortly be tested in Paris-Saclay.
The i-Cristal driverless, trackless electric shuttle was inaugurated on Monday 10 September. Autonomous and capable of navigating in a city environment, i-Cristal also offers wheelchair access.
On Monday 10 September 2018, the Lower Rhine manufacturer Lohr and the mobility operator Transdev presented the fruit of their joint project, the autonomous electric vehicle, “i-Cristal”. Two road tests were announced for the end of the year.
