PRT (PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT) IMPACT STUDY. OPERATIONAL PHASE. VOLUME I: TRAVEL ANALYSIS

To study the impact of the Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) on Morgantown, a substantial amount of data was collected in an attempt to capture the state of transportation related conditions before and after passenger service. This report contains an analysis of the latter set of data; namely, that collected in the spring of 1977. The data described in this report, together with those reported in the Pre-PRT Phase, allows assessment of the PRT system impacts on the city of Morgantown. The completed assessment provides other cities considering implementation of AGT systems, sufficiently detailed information to determine whether they can effectively and efficiently utilize a Morgantown type PRT system to satisfy their transportation needs.
