INNOVATIONAL GUIDEWAY SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY IN EUROPE: NEW PRODUCT AND INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES. SUMMARY REPORT AND GUIDE

This summary report sets out and highlights the major findings of the investigation which has been fully reported elsewhere. The study covers innovational ground public transport systems that move passengers within and between cities. It is concerned with the "hardware" of the systems and geographically covers western Europe. In chapter 2 there is a lengthy tabulated summary of the various system developments and their status together with information on a number of projects e.g. personal rapid transit, line haul transit and intercity systems. The future prospects for and present trends of the new guideway systems and technology are considered in chapter 3 in the light of relevant factors such as energy, environment, materials and operating costs. The annexes contain a table of contents of the full report, system dossiers on "minitram" and "pendair", and an index. /TRRL/
