Automated People Movers - What You Need To Know!

Automated People Movers, often found in airports or theme parks,  can be used in a range of environments to efficiently move small groups of people directly to a destination.

It is envisaged Personal Rapid Transit (a smaller APM sytstem) may:

  • Provide future cities "a highly accessible, user-responsive, environmentally friendly transport system which offers a sustainable and economic solution."
  • "cover its operating costs, and provide a return which could pay for most, if not all, of its capital costs."
  • provide "a level of service which is superior to that available from conventional public transport."
  • be "well received by the public, both public transport and car users."
