The webinar is titled: ‘What to plan for when planning for Automated Transit Networks’ and will discuss the key aspects of assessing whether advanced transit systems such as personal rapid transit (PRT) and group rapid transit (GRT) are a fit with the application’s requirements and characteristics. Featured expert speakers represent ARUP, Lea+Elliott and PRT Consulting.
The webinar will last approximately 40 minutes after which there will be opportunity to ask questions to the speakers and members of the ATRA Industry Group.
During the session we will be covering topics such as:
<ul><li>Where to start with the assessment? What information is required to start evaluating the potential project?</li>
<li>What capacity can ATN realistically provide? Can they handle surge loads?</li>
<li>What is required in terms of right-of-way? How can they be integrated into an existing urban environment?</li></ul>
