The RUF system only requires very little space, so it can be placed at many locations where it would be impossible to place infrastructure with a similar capacity.

The fast lane of a 6-lane highway could be converted into a RUF rail. This would potentially double the vehicle capacity of the highway (based upon intelligent train formation algorithms).

Compared to the old monorail of Seattle, the RUF monorail is much more slender. The ALWEG vehicle measures 3.3 x 4.5 m where as the maxi-ruf only measures 2 x 2 m.
