With increasing population, which leaves people to seek alternative forms of transportation for densely populated areas? Well this idea to the city of Masdar looks like something from an Isaac Asimov book I read years ago. They are basically a taxi driver without electronics. You choose if you want to go and that will take you there or near it. Initially the system was kept simple enough, but as time changed and will still become more complex.
In fact, the planner who designed the network refers to it more as a type of elevator from now on. Just push a button and takes you where you need to go. Passengers can get within 100 meters of your destination. The system that is located in Abu Dhabi is definitely revolutionary. I doubt that this new system is perfect, but I am curious to see that to be modified and other ideas that were generated from it. Personal Rapid Transit is set to make its debut sometime this year.
