Abstract [en]

Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) offers direct, on-demand travel in automated vehicles seating 3-6 passengers on exclusive right-of-way. Commercially available systems now offer speeds up to 45 kph at headways from 3 seconds. With 3-second headways, a typical load of 1.5 passengers and 30 empty vehicles, the link capacity will be 1200 passengers per hour (one direction). This paper explores ways to extend the capabilities of PRT with respect to capacity and speed. Strategies have been developed and verified with the generic simulation software PRTsim.
