What is PRT?
The most energy efficient urban mass transit system that has been devised so far, PRT consists of small, light-weight vehicles that hold anywhere from two to six passengers. The vehicles run on elevated or ground level guide ways under computer control. PRT vehicles are electric cars that are extremely quiet and run either on batteries or by taking power from electric contacts on the guide way. PRT systems do not use schedules; service is demand responsive, rather than on fixed schedules and is available 24 hours a day and it takes you from your origination to your destination with no stops in between.
