WBTNI, getting on track with light light rail
« on: June 08, 2008, 04:20:17 PM »
Has everybody heard of the Bishop Austrans system (http://www.austrans.com)? There are enthusiasts for it hiding in the bureaucracy, who see it as a potential solution to provision of high frequency service 24/7 on routes that could link outer suburbs to main line citytrain routes.  :-w

Any comments?
John

This system is very similar to one that is 30+years old., the elevator company had developed what is essentially the same and from memory was used at Expo 70? in Canada.
Could be the wheel is reinvented?

It's called Personal Rapid Transit (PRT). A system is under construction at Heathrow T5 in London to connect the terminal with the car parks. http://www.atsltd.co.uk/prt/
