URBAN DEPLOYMENT OF AN AERIAL GUIDEWAY PEOPLE MOVER IN THE DETROIT CBD
This paper presents findings of the functional and engineering feasibility studies for an aerial guideway people mover system (PMS) within the Detroit Central Business District (CBD). Emphasis is placed upon the process of developing alternative alignments and their evaluation. A detailed discussion is included regarding the problems of constructing an aerial guideway within an existing urban center and how the environmental requirements are met in achieving a plan commanding broad-based community support.
