PRT Performance Comparison – Average Speed

Average speed is determined by line speed, number of stops, distance between stops, dwell time at stops, and trip length

PRT systems can achieve an average speed of 20-25 mph with line speed of 25-30 mph due to non-stop trip

PRT trips can be 80-100% faster than a typical bus trip

PRT trips can be 20-30% faster than a typical heavy rail trip

All else being equal, higher average speed can result in higher patronage

Non-stop service allows PRT to have higher average speeds than other transit modes
