2007), the author defines PRT as a subcategory of AGT that offers on-demand, nonstop transportation using small, automated vehicles on a network of dedicated guideways with off-line stations. Similar to DLM and APM applications, PRT operates automated vehicles along dedicated guideways. In contrast to DLM and APM applications, PRT vehicles are designed for a single person or a small group traveling together by choice on a network of guideways, and the trip is nonstop with no transfer. PRT stations are often off-line or bypass main lines, so vehicles stop only at their riders’ final destination stations.
