SEATTLE PRT STUDY. VOLUME I. SUMMARY

In 1969 and 1970, the City of Seattle became one of five selected medium sized cities to be included in the Center Cities Transportation Project (CCTP). Increased interest in PRT/people-mover technology culminated in a three-party agreement and ultimately led to the current investigation and analysis of automated transit technology. The feasibility of a PRT or people-mover system application is being evaluated in a two-phase study: Phase 1 - Site-selection for a people-mover system, and Phase 2 - System implementation for the locales selected in Phase 1 study. This is the Interim Report for Phase 1 of the PRT study and is presented in two volumes. This volume consists of a general overview of the total Phase 1 study.
