RUBBER-TIRED RAPID TRANSIT

The results are presented of a technology survey which were carried out in an effort to evaluate the current state-of-the-art in rubber-tired rapid transit. The survey obtained data from transit properties that have had systems operating for a considerable period of time. Information from operating test tracks was included, as well as data from manufacturing plants and research agencies. The characteristics of 19 of the systems surveyed are tabulated. The systems are organized into 3 categories: medium capacity system (U.S.), medium capacity systems (Japan) and high capacity systems (Canada, Mexico, and Japan).
