CONTROLLING SNOW AND ICE ON THE MORGANTOWN PEOPLE MOVER SYSTEM

This paper describes how the Morgantown People Mover has become the first automated guideway system in an urban area which is fully operational throughtout winter. Unique operational methods and mechanical features of the vehicle have been developed to assure adequate tire traction, consistent steering and switching performance, and reliable power collection during their severe winter weather. Operating costs and the trends in winter operational reliability show the continuing improvement as system operating experience is accumulated. /Author/
