CATT Researcher Presents at Conference on Modern Mobility

Stanley Young, Ph.D., a researcher at the Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) located within the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park, moderated a conference on modern mobility.

The conference hosted by the Advanced Transit Association, which Young is president of, focused on personal rapid transit (PRT), which consists of a network  of pod-like vehicles on an elevated monorail-like structure with many off-line stations, so trips are non-stop, there is very little waiting, and everyone gets a seat. This conference also marked the end of a two-year study that examined the feasibility of a 27-station PRT system at the Village West development located in western Kansas City, Kansas.

For more information about the conference read the write up provided by Wyandotte County, Kansas City, Kansas.
