AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT SOCIO-ECONOMIC RESEARCH PROGRAM FINDINGS, 1976-1979

This report summarizes initial findings from the ongoing AGT Socio-Economic Research Program of the UMTA. The program addresses the operational performance, social, economic, environmental, and institutional issues associated with AGT technology to determine where and under what conditions AGT will prove to be a feasible urban public transportation mode. The report includes: (1) a review of empirically-based assessment data on the performance, costs, and public acceptability of operational AGT systems; (2) an analysis of urban AGT feasibility concentrating on AGT ridership potential and associated costs relative to other public transportation modes; (3) an investigation of potential socio-economic and environmental impacts of urban AGT deployment; and (4) an analysis of the nature and magnitude of the potential national market for AGT technology.
