THE CAB TRACK-HOW REALISTIC IS IT? /IN SWEDISH/

DIFFERENT CAB TRACK SYSTEMS ARE BEING TESTED IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES. THE RISING INTEREST IN CAB TRACK IS DUE TO THE FACT THAT IT IS ECONOMICAL AS FAR AS MAINTENANCE IS CONCERNED. ON THE OTHER HAND IT IS RELATIVELY EXPENSIVE TO CONSTRUCT, BUT IS FAST AND DOES NOT CAUSE AIR POLLUTION. THERE ARE MAINLY TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF CAB TRACK UNDER DEVELOPMENT - ONE WITH BIGGER VEHICLES FOR ABOUT 10-20 PERSONS AND ONE SMALLER TYPE FOR 2-3 PERSONS. ABOUT TEN DIFFERENT COMPANIES ARE DEVELOPING THEIR OWN SYSTEMS AND IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE SOON TO CHOOSE BETWEEN DIFFERENT READY-DEVELOPED SYSTEMS. WHEN COMPARED TO UNDERGROUND TRAINS AND BUSES, THE CAB TRACK OFFERS MANY ADVANTAGES; IF THE NUMBER OF PASSENGERS IS LARGE ENOUGH, THE CAB TRACK IS THE CHEAPEST ALTERNATIVE; FURTHERMORE, IT HAS A SPEED THREE TIMES AS FAST. /TRRL/
