Transport vehicles allow you to easily configure different vehicle types and apply them to transport routes.
In Podaris, you create vehicles in order to apply them to trips within routes of the same mode. The settings you choose will impact trip performance and help define the route's overall capacity. For instance, by creating different vehicles you can quickly compare the impact of using a 12 Meter bus against a 24 Meter bus.
