PRT is Environmentally Friendly

 

Environment: 

Buses and trains must meet their schedules even when partially full or empty; hauling around empty seats wastes energy. A PRT vehicle runs only when someone needs it.  Electrically powered, PRT are zero-emission vehicles that can run on sustainable “green-power” sources.  PRT has the comfort, speed and ease of use that dramatically increases ridership levels reducing the need for massive parking lots and congestion on our roadways, benefiting  everyone.
