The RUF concept is thought to be working closely with IT.

The public maxi-ruf vehicle can be ordered via PC or telephone. Dynamic route planning is used to optimize the function. A flexible fare structure makes it possible to fulfill the needs of several groups of users.

A "smart box" can be used to pay for the trip. It could even be combined with a cellular phone.

The Internet is an integrated part of the rail and a RUF commuter will log on to the net as soon as he has entered the rail. He can now work electronically while he moves his body to his physical work place. He will earn money while car commuters waste their time sitting in unpredictable highway ques.
