Britain town could be first with personal rapid transit

The Britain town of Daventry has launched a masterplan for future development which includes potential use of personal rapid transit, which could encourage hi-tech businesses to invest in the area and would produce 90% fewer emissons than car travel.

Personal rapid transit consists of automated vehicles, such as ULTra technology, which carry a small number of people along a rail or guideway. A number of schemes have been mooted but have failed to secure funding. The first UK system is being developed at Heathrow Airport to link car parks with terminal areas.
