Introduction of the RUF system in Seattle will have very beneficial effects.

Congestion problems will be reduced very significantly and commuter time will be converted to constructive time without stress. New capacity can be added to the traffic system, without removing any of the old road network.

Energy consumption when driving a car at high speed normally originates from the air resistance. In the RUF system where rufs are closely coupled while driving at high speed on the rail, the energy consumption can be lowered very significantly. This way the CO2 problem can be reduced without limiting mobility.

The IT workers of Seattle will be able to extend their working period using the commuter time constructively.

The investments planned for a Light Rail system will be used better creating a RUF network covering all of the Seattle region. It will attract users from all over the area unlike any train system which will only attract a minority of citizens.
