PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT II. PROGRESS, PROBLEMS AND POTENTIAL. INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT, MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, MAY 2-4, 1973

This collection of over 60 papers was presented at the 1973 International Conference on Personal Rapid Transit in Minneapolis, Minnesota. PRT is the class of fixed-guideway systems in which automated vehicles no larger than small automobiles carry people and/or goods nonstop between any pair of stations in a network of slim guideways that serve major activity centers or may span an entire urban area. There is great emphasis on technological issues with relatively little attention given to issues involved with planning, economics, implementation and the implications of PRT for urban society. The papers are classified in the following sections: (I) Government Programs; (II) Systems Presentations; (III) Planning in Specific Cities; (IV) The Design of PRT Planning Studies; (V) Implementation; (VI) Safe Headway and Control; (VII) Operations; (VIII) System Concepts; (IX) Dual Mode and Estimation of Modal Choice; and (X) Design Aspects.
