REPORT OF A CONFERENCE ON ADVANCED TRANSIT AND URBAN REVITALIZATION, INDIANAPOLIS 25TH-28TH APRIL, 1978

This report on the three day conference organised by the U.S. Advanced Transit Association is on the application of advanced transit to U.S. and West German cities, including the UMTA downtown people mover (dpm) programme. "People mover" is described as a compact, automatic public transport system using driverless vehicles which run on their own segregated guideway. A description is given of some 80 formal technical and non-technical papers (including seventeen from West Germany), and reports on informal sessions involving local government, property developers, community groups and public transport operators. The first dpm is expected to be in operation in 1981/2, and several more by 1984. /TRRL/
