Presentation Transcript

  1. Fort Carson Community Sustainability Personal Rapid Transit

  2. What is PRT? Example Systems Visualization PRT Characteristics Comparison with Other Systems Video/Animation Outline

  3. Planning - is PRT appropriate? Simulations Alternatives analyses (layouts & systems) Benefit/cost analyses Engineering Station & guideway design System operation Procurement choose the best vendor PRT Consulting, Inc. Independent Consultant

  4. Direct origin to destination service No need to transfer or stop Small vehicles Service on demand – not scheduled Fully automated vehicles (T-Pods) What is Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)?

  5. T-Pods may be captive to a guideway Small guideways – elevated, at grade or underground T-Pods can use all guideways and stations on a fully connected network What is Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)?

  6. What is Personal Rapid Transit (PRT)? Open Guideway (ULTra) Captive Bogey (Postech) Suspended (JPods)

  7. Vehicles carry 4 – 20 passengers Max. speed = 25mph Capacity up to 2,500pphpd Vendor is 2getthere http://www.2getthere.eu Operating since 1997 2getthere

  8. 2getthere T-Pod capacity

  9. 2getthere T-Pod interior

  10. 2,650 lb gross weight 4 passengers 25 mph 2KW continuous battery power www.atsltd.co.uk The ULTra system T-Pod Features

  11. T-Pod interior

  12. Elevated guideway costs similar to footbridge 6ft U-shaped guideway Capacity similar to freeway lane Infrastructure features

  13. In operation since 1975 15 second headways 5,000 pphpd Intermediate stations are bypassed 98.5% availability (Transit LOS A) Morgantown Credit: John Bell

  14. Speeds up to 30mph 10% maximum gradient Capital cost ($126M) overran budget Operating cost $3.3M/year ($1.50/passenger, $0.94/passenger mile) 2 additional stations being planned Morgantown

  15. Comparative Visualization Personal Rapid TransitandConventional Transit

  21. PRT Characteristics

  22. 40% of shuttle bus at Heathrow 67% of shuttle bus at DIA 45% of APM at DIA 15min. Time savings at Morgantown Results from no waiting and non-stop travel, not speed Trip Time

  23. One way traffic Lower maximum speeds Separated from other traffic and pedestrians Crowding (a potential security vulnerability) is avoided 110 million injury-free passenger miles at Morgantown (regular transit would have injured over 100) Safety and Security

  24. Energy Use

  25. Operating Cost per Passenger Source: Booz Allen Hamilton

  26. US$5 – 15 million per one-way mile complete Two-way is less than double Probable Capital Costs

  27. Compared PRT with Conventional Transit (Light Rail, Bus) Automobile Good OK Bad Comparison Study

  28. Comparison Study More like a car than a bus

  29. Comparison Study First Class Transit
