The RUF system is a network of guideways with typically 5 km between the access points. This means that it is relevant to couple the rufs in trains between the access points.

Coupling of rufs means that the capacity will increase, the safety will increase and the energy consumption will be reduced significantly.

Modern AC electric motors can be controlled very precisely and the ruf is perfectly guided on the triangular monorail. This means that the coupling is relatively easy.

The front of the rear of the rufs are shaped so that close coupling is possible.
