To meet the increasing demand for information on unconventional passenger transportation systems, the UITP has prepared this bibliography which deals comprehensively and systematically with the following subjects: Rapid transit systems, so called monorails, horizontal elevators, people movers, high-speed ground transportation systems (HSGT), tracked air cushion vehicles (TACV), magnetically levitated systems, non-stop fast link systems with rendez-vous manoevre, intra-airport systems, airport-access systems, quasi-continuously working capsule systems, escalators, low- and high-speed moving belts, computer-controlled personal rapid transit systems (PRT), new methods of bus operation, dual-mode systems and pallet systems both for buses and private cars, jitneys, public automobile system (PAS), electric cars, and the automatic highway. Transportation systems with electronic control, electric vehicles and concepts respecting the demands of town planning and environmental protection are included. New propulsion systems such as low-pollution Diesel engine, rotary piston engine, liquid gas propulsion, gas turbine, steam engine, Rankine cycle engine, Stirling engine, electric propulsion by means of storage battery, fuel cell, Diesel-electric engine and hybrid engine, and linear induction motor, are also dealt with.
