PRT IMPACT ON TRANSPORTATION

The increasing congestion of urban areas requires multimodal transportation solutions. Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is discussed as one of the supporting modes for regional systems as a feeder to high-speed corridors and for circulation and distribution missions. PRT may begin as small loop or linear systems and expand to complex network grids in planned phases. For equal dollars spent, increased ridership and route coverage is possible with PRT systems versus line-haul corridor systems. All modes must complement each other.
