  • 5. What is PRT ?What is PRT ?What is PRT ?What is PRT ? • PRT stands for Personal Rapid Transit system. It consists of a light guideway infrastructure suspended some 10-15 meters above the ground over city streets or along the curb side. • Individual travel in automatic, car size vehicles ; on demand only ; no stopping from start to destination, with high average speed of 20 to 50 km/hr ; • safer than air travel ; inexpensive to build, maintain and operate. • It is a 50 year old concept which only now is coming to the fore as a result of inexpensive computer technology making such development feasible • Extensive literature is available on the internet e.g. http://faculty.washington.edu/jbs/itrans/ Introduction www.mistwww.mist--er.comer.com http://faculty.washington.edu/jbs/itrans/ 5 Public transit solution and tourist attraction for cities

It is like food, i.e. a necessity. • There are really no better means for city transportation in existence or possible. • While the projects are large, the leverage for the initial investors is hard to match. • Investing in a hotel or other known type of business will not have the leverage, as the investment in a global corporation, that MISTER is set to become.
