A serial of good illustrating pictures showing the point of area demand:
Tip : Open all the below pictures in a row and surf along them as in a movie. The effect is most enlightening.
- If you imagine the PRT system elevated as well, the positive effect for the human and animate environment should be obvious.
A: With a nice flow you get 1000 vehicles per lane
B: Each vehicle contains on average 1,2 person
C: The passengers in reality need a minimum of space
D: A PRT system needs little space, and passengers may read, work or simply enjoy the ride
E: The missing last picture with an elevated structure and restored nature below ... was finally made by Lars Endre Kjølstad
