PERSONAL RAPID TRANSIT--MORGANTOWN, W. VA.
Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is a relatively new transportation mode, offering passengers a direct, non-stop, origin/destination ride, on demand. Development has taken various forms, and still continues at a considerable pace with intense interest. The first full operational PRT system in the world is at Morgantown, W. Va., and is described in detail. Some observations are offered on capital and recurrent costs, and means of meeting them through revenue.
