A bimodal tram is a new design vehicle introduced to improve a current transportation system, and it has advantages of a bus and a subway. A pipe truss bridge, an exclusive road of the bimodal tram, is constructed for introduction of the bimodal tram. An analysis of dynamic response characteristics is required because this new bridge has never constructed before. A speed increasing test on the pipe truss bridge was conducted with attaching a sensor to bottom of the bridge. Also, Dynamic response characteristics were analyzed by measuring displacements, the maximum vertical and horizontal acceleration about the new bridge through the experiment.
