Referendum 'Campusbahn': The citizens of the city of Aachen, voted on Sunday 10 March 2013. A two-thirds majority was against the reintroduction of a tram in Aachen. The project "Campusbahn" is therefore not pursued.
The turnout was 43.0 percent. The statutory quorum - 10 percent of the eligible voters had to vote for one of the two alternatives - has been reached, the referendum is therefore valid.

Positive cost-benefit calculation (“Standardisierte Bewertung”)
There is only a positive cost-benefit calculation when the light rail line is extended beyond the Central Bus Station.
After a very detailed study to find the right system a light rail system proved to be the most cost efficient system per kilometre. Furthermore, an integration in the existing urban transport system is possible, and the light rail could be extended into the city centre. Please have a look at the presentation of the feasibility study "RWTH-Campusbahn Peoplemover".

This RoCK subproject involves a feasibility study of an innovative public transport system for the connection between all areas of RWTH University Campus and the station Aachen-West (interchange to forthcoming intercity connection Eindhoven-Aachen). It covers urban design and economic issues as well as traffic-related aspects.
