    so to increase the service frequency .... or to increase the service frequency

    Hello again!

    Rubber-tired Métros were first invented by the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens in order to allow better acceleration performance so to increase the service frequency, as well as minimize noise and vibrations towards neighbouring buildings.

    To my way of thinking, the whole sentence could be understood as "Rubber-tired Métros were first invented by the Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens in order to allow better acceleration performance to increase the service frequency, as well as minize noise and vibrations towards neighbouring buildings".

    Do you agree?

    Thank you.

    Re: so to increase the service frequency .... or to increase the service frequency

    If the original really says "... so to increase the service frequency", then there is a typo. I think it is meant to say "... so as to increase the service frequency". Can you check the original please?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
