EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN PLAN FOR THE DOWNTOWN PEOPLE MOVER DEMONSTRATION PROJECTS

Shuttle Loop Transit (SLT) is a surface form of Automated Guideway Transit (AGT) which has demonstrated itself in a number of deployments throughout the country, namely, airports, recreational/amusement parks, and similar special purpose applications. The Urban Mass Transportation Administration (UMTA) has approved federal financing of demonstration systems in four cities (Cleveland, Houston, Los Angeles, and St. Paul) to establish the viability and desirability of this technology in more demanding general downtown applications. This document presents an experimental design (ExD) Plan for the Downtown People Mover (DPM) projects planned by UMTA. This ExD Plan is a structured evaluation approach, designed to permit the objective assessment of the individual demonstration projects and development of transferable evaluation conclusions.
