In Canada, the Urban Transportation Development Cor- poration (UTDC) developed a new automated streetcar/light rail transit (LRT) vehicle technology for Toronto following an extensive study of automated guideway systems.

The resulting Automated Light Rail Transit (ALRT) is characterized by auto- mated operations, steel wheel (steel rail. The contract stipulated that the system had to be operational on 13 July Construction of the Airtrans guideway took place almost on-schedule, which turned out to be better than the airport itself.

When DFW opened in JanuaryAirtrans, which had been heralded as "people mover of the future,' quickly fell short of : Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, Texas.

The two primary types are automated people movers (APM’s) and personal rapid transit (PRT). APM’s can be found at several US airports and other activity centers.

APMs can include technologies that are also called automated guideway transit (AGT) and, when fully automated, monorails and low-speed magnetic levitation (maglev) systems. The main differences between APM systems and other transit technolo- gies are that APMs are driverless and that the vehicles are not subject to roadway-based congestion and.

A people mover or automated people mover (APM) is a type of small scale automated guideway transit system.

The term is generally used only to describe systems serving relatively small areas such as airports, downtown districts or theme parks.

The term was originally applied to three different systems, developed roughly at the same time. Full text of "Automated Guideway Transit Service Availability Workshop: final report: [proceedings]" See other formats.
