COMPARISON OF PERSONALIZED RAPID TRANSIT AND CONVENTIONAL SYSTEMS IN A PEOPLE-MOVER APPLICATION

As one part of a study to determine economic and design feasibility of developing a people-mover system in Downtown Minneapolis, a comprehensive comparison of new technology (including Personalized Rapid Transit - PRT) and conventional system alternatives was made. This study included a comparison of level of service, technology required, compatibility with the existing area, economics of the system, and impact on the environment. This paper presents the part of the study that compared systems in terms of potential passenger service and compatibility with the existing area. In terms of compatibility, the major emphasis is on the visual impact of an aerial guideway system within a downtown area.
