OUR MISSION

Our mission is to help to facilitate the cost effective growth of the UK railway system, particularly through the use of line extensions and re-openings. A key aim of the project is to enable the connectivity of regional and rural areas in an affordable and sustainable manner for operators, using lightweight, low-emission vehicles that offer the highest standards of comfort and safety.

A ‘WORLD FIRST’ PROJECT

This disruptive, first-of-a-kind project is led by Transport Design International (TDI), a leader in very light rail vehicle design with extensive rail experience. Utilising the latest and most innovative technologies from the rail and other key sectors, it will incorporate a composite bodyshell and unique propulsion system to deliver improved passenger mobility and comfort, connect people and places throughout the UK.

SUSTAINABILITY

Our mission is to reduce the environmental impact of public transport/rail systems, provide sustainable cost-effective outcomes and educate future generations.

Revolution VLR solutions offer a range of enhanced opportunities, such as decarbonisation and will enable land owners, developers, construction companies, local authorities and other stakeholders to ensure the provision of innovative, environmentally friendly, safe, secure and sustainable transport that make journeys easier and reliable.
