Personal rapid transit (PRT) multimode and scheduled service characteristics of automated people movers are presented. A description of the operating and design features of the single-sided linear induction motor (LIM) and the HOVAIR air-cushion technology is included, along with important characteristics of the vehicle, the guideways, and the switches. The particular advantages of off-line docking stations, such as saving space in stations and improved passenger flow through the use of random access docks, are discussed. The command and control philosophy, some performance data, and rough budgetary price information are also given.
