Vision for the Future PRT  - The Network Utility Model

PRT has the opportunity to develop a new business model with the potential to SCALE beyond the limited access of fixed guideway transit

The model is founded on the success of other commercial network businesses such as:

Telephone

Internet

Cell Phones

Cable

These network industries are founded on several fundamental principles:

Open standards

Mass production and economies of scale

Multiple suppliers and providers

Government regulation of public access and right of way

Market pricing

Open competition

Private funding

Transit can also follow these network successes if the fundamentals are applied to a common technology
