PRT Capital Cost Comparison

Capital costs are highly specific to location, line layout, number and complexity of stations

The design of PRT systems, with small vehicles and guideways, can support lower capital costs than other exclusive, grade-separated, fixed guideway rail systems

PRT costs can be expected to be comparable with exclusive right-of-way BRT systems

Lower capital costs would be primarily due to:

Smaller guideway and stations

Reduced civil work and right-of-way acquisition
