ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS OF PRT - A FURTHER STUDY.

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

A parametric study of system variables of Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) networks is presented. The analysis examines the effect that the detour penalty associated with one-way networks has on system ridership. A preliminary estimate of the potential PRT ridership from kiss-and-ride access is given. The analysis further considers modal split, reduced-auto emissions, cost per mile, benefit-cost ratio, electrical-power requirements, vehicle-fleet size and guideway and station-capacity requirements as dependent variables. Independent variables are population density, trip length, PRT operating and fixed costs, mesh spacing, auto speed, perceived-auto-mileage cost, parking cost, PRT speed and fare. Particular attention is paid to the eeffects that parking cost, auto speed, perceived-auto-mileage cost and trip length have on the dependent variables.
