Ridership Capacity
Skytran: Two people go by "here" every half second, 2 half seconds in a second, 60 seconds/min, 60 min/hr = 14,400 passengers per hour.
Heavy Rail Benchmark: "The reasonable maximum for light rail in U.S. cities, implying four-car trains every three minutes during peak periods, is about 8,000 pass/hr, implying about 60,000 pass/weekday." Baltimore~12,000 and Washington DC~41,000 pass-mi/rt-mi. [Ridership Analysis for L.A. Metro, see pg 10]
Highway Benchmark: Assuming a generous 1.2 average occupancy per vehicle for mixed-flow lanes gives a carrying capacity of 2400 persons per lane. [Source]
