"The book summarizes the work on Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) carried out at the Aerospace Corporation from 1968 to 1976."
"The design of a routable guideway transit system is much different than that of a corridor system. In the typical corridor system, a collection of two-way linear routes creates a network, and travelers must transfer among routes. In a routable system, such as PRT or GRT, the design principles learned from corridor systems do not apply.
"The purpose in developing theory about the design of such networks is to aid in design of initial systems so that as they expand, they “scale up” well in terms of connectivity, speed, and cost. Design mistakes in small systems could be very burdensome during expansion."
"Cities21 is a group of professionals working together for better transit, greater urban livability, and reduced pollution. Some elements we favor: transit villages, real-estate in-fill, workforce housing, automated transit, and wireless connection-making software."
