New Transit Technologies: An Objective Analysis Is Overdue, Vukan R. Vuchic, Richard M. Stanger

Departmental Papers (ESE)

New urban transit systems incorporating inefficient and obsolete technical features are being promoted, discussed and funded. Typically they involve automatic operation with rubber tyre guidance; rail systems which are clearly superior are concurrently ignored. Dr. Vukan R. Vuchic of the University of Pennsylvania and Richard M. Stanger of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority* urge transit planners, operators and equipment manufacturers to exploit the great potential of rail technology rather than pursuing innovation for its own sake.
