The Lyon Urban Truck & Bus (LUTB) Cluster in Europe is dedicated to urban passenger and goods transport. Five programs have completed 96 projects including Transpolis, a technological platform dedicated to the study of public passenger and goods transport. The Transpolis modular test and validation center is composed of areas such as future bus stops and reconfigurable delivery areas. CityFret is an open-ended research program system that experiments with urban goods delivery and contributes toward improving the economic performance of supply chains. The Modulo-Sys research program is developing a public transport bus system that is both modular and extendable. Buses can be adapted to variations in passenger demand by the addition or removal of towed units according to the time of day. LUTB also offers a training institute dedicated to transport.
