The purpose of the study is to provide sufficient, reliable information to citizens and public officials of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area as a basis for determination of the best form of automated fixed guideway system to satisfy needs of the area. For purposes of comparison, an overall objective of the SVS study process was to develop small vehicle alternatives which would be comparable in cost to the 57-mile Intermediate Capacity Rapid Transit (ICRT) system approved by the Twin Cities Area Metropolitan Transit Commission in December 1972, and which would offer a more demand-responsive service.
