The 1975 International Conference on Personal Rapid Transit 760323

The 1975 International Conference on Personal Rapid Transit, held in Denver, Colorado, on September 16-19, brought together engineers, planners, architects, economists, politicians, transit-minded citizens, and students from six countries. Since PRT is in the formative stage, opinions differ greatly as to how and whether these systems should be built. Through presentation and discussion of 47 papers and several panels, the conference did much to clarify the characteristics of PRT. Particularly on the basis of economics, urban design, system operations, and public need, a strong case was made that PRT development should receive strong support.
