The EcoBus system researched in our department has another application. In Leipzig, a system with minibuses starts, which transport passengers on demand. In comparison to the previous test operations in the Harz Mountains and Bad Gandersheim, the system has been expanded once again so that passengers can easily change to trams, buses or suburban trains. The pilot operation is planned until mid-March 2020.

Scientists of our department at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen used the EcoBus system to research flexible mobility. In pilot phases in the Bad Gandersheim and Kalefeld areas and around Goslar, Clausthal-Zellerfeld and Osterode in the Harz mountains, up to 10 buses were operated. Together with the public transport authorities, the Regionalverband Braunschweig area and the Zweckverband Verkehrsverbund in the South of Lower Saxony, we tested the results of our basic research in the two pilot trials in order to improve the theoretical predictions and test them in practice.
