LRT and PRT again
I have vacillated between suspicion of and potential support for Personal Rapid Transit. I can only say for sure that PRT acts as another wedge issue that splits the left and right into mixed factions of supporters and detractors (much like the wedge issue of "ethanol as a gasoline substitute").
Based on the lawsuit between Ed Anderson and Taxi 2000 pointed out by Ken at RoadKillBill (see the "Learn why PRT is a joke" link), we will soon enough see how things shakeout in the Minneapolis PRT landscape.
In the meantime, I wish we can have a transit system like Denmark, where anyone can ride freely available bicycles to get from point A to B. This basically demonstrates the simplicity of the LRT option with the convenience of PRT. Oh to be an irresponsible bicycling youth again, with no cares about locks and flats. And cats have nothing to fear from the slow-moving clunkers.
