Cooperation of PRT with Ring Monorail: A Case Study

Waldemar Grabski , Wiktor B. Daszczuk

Abstract

It is difficult to organize urban transport in a city center. Existing buildings, narrow streets and operating infrastructure make it difficult to let old-fashion transport means like tram or bus. In the paper, a raised transport consisting of ring monorail and commuter PRT network are analyzed. The proposed solution consists of fast ring railway called “monorail” and PRT (personal rapid transit) network serving as side roads. These two transportation means form a hierarchically layered system. It is shown on an case of an exemplary city that the proposed solution is possible and reasonable. A ridership of the whole system is obtained: for monorail by analytical calculations and for PRT by simulation.
