INTERCITY PASSENGER TRANSPORT STUDY. TRACKED AIR CUSHION VEHICLES IN THE CANADIAN CORRIDOR
Early in 1969, the Canadian Transport Commission, Research Branch initiated a study of intercity passenger transport in the urbanized corridor of Eastern Canada. One area investigated was the application of new technology in the corridor from a standpoint of technical, operational and economic feasibility. Many new concepts had been proposed for relatively high speed intercity travel, and one of the more promising concepts selected for analysis was the Tracked Air Cushion Vehicle (TACV). The contents of this volume do not attempt to represent an all encompassing picture of TACV development. The volume principally is intended as a supplementary publication to the "Intercity Passenger Transport Study".
