In the UAE of course. Various transport experts I’ve corresponded with criticise the capacity of PRT (Personal Rapid Transit) systems to cope with peak hour demand in a city like Sydney. But I think they’ll be a niche transport solution in dense and diverse cities like Masdar that have a mix of work, residential, and lifestyle all around. In other words, a PRT system in Masdar will not have to deal with a million people moving large distances from huge suburban areas to just a few central business districts! So PRT for Sydney? Maybe limited applications…. at least with our current city infrastructure. But PRT in Masdar? Well, at least we won’t have too long to wait and see.
