The development is described of network models (for personal rapid transit, systems) which contain the basic network geometry and trip-making characteristics and provide a baseline model for service policy/cost trade-off studies as well as for the design of various system management algorithms required to implement a chosen service policy. This effort involved the determination of the discriminating characteristics of the high performance PRT and high capacity PRT systems developments, the review and classification of planning studies, and the determination of basic forms for the networks and travel patterns. The planning studies were further reviewed to determine special constraints considered in the urban implementation.
