Abstract

A parametric study of system variables of large-scale personal rapid transit (PRT) networks is presented. An idealized urban area having uniformly distributed population (trip) origins and destinations serves as the trip model, and a square mesh pattern serves as the PRT network model. Independent variables in the analysis are population (trip) density, PRT operating and fixed costs, mesh spacing, automobile speed, perceived automobile cost per mile, and PRT speed and fare.
