The report describes a dual mode transit system, demonstrates the rationale for design and presents a summary of activities undertaken to develop the system. It documents results of research which combines a demand-activated, high-speed system using pallet transporters that move on a guideway with a feeder bus system that retains flexibility through the use of dial-a-ride. Chapters include discussion of user scenarios, command, control and communication system, malfunction detection, on-guideway vehicle longitudinal and lateral control, vehicle, guideway, system capacity and future expansion, stations, maintenance, environmental impact, safety, reliability, maintainability, availability, and a cost analysis summary.
