COST EFFECTIVE AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT IN THE CENTRAL CITY

If automated guideway transit is to become a significant alternative transit mode, it must foremost be cost effective compared with alternatives. It must also be safe, reliable, environmentally acceptable, and energy efficient. Based on a series of systems analysis arguments, the paper summarizes how the basic characteristics of an AGT system of maximum cost effectiveness can be derived. But the main objective of the paper is to consider the application of such a system to a central city together with its primary and secondary impacts. The process of implementation of a cost-effective AGT system is considered.
