Automated Transit Networks (ATN), and the small-vehicle subset of Personal Rapid Transit (PRT), are emerging technologies that can help solve the related problems of congestion, dependence on foreign oil, and planetary climate disruption. ATN/PRT offers clean, quiet, responsive public transit with automated non-stop service available 24 hours a day. In addition to these service benefits, PRT costs far less to build and operate than other transit options ¯ and is safer than walking and cycling on nearby busy streets.
A quick introduction to the technology is this excellent 3-minute video that shows how PRT could be used at the Microsoft campus. Help us move the City of Milpitas to use ATN technology in a pilot project to cross a barrier. Please contribute $20 or more to the effort at http://sunnyhillsneighborhood.org/crossing.html#help
Proposed pilot project for Milpitas, CA. The blue lines in the image above indicate guideways and the ovals indicate station locations.
