Citizens For Personal Rapid Transit (CPRT) Twin Cities MN

This petition had 11 supporters

Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) solves a majority of transportation requirements for people across all levels of economic status.

Models for transportation are outdated and restricting the innovation we believe in. The transit that once supported people working in single locations, and approaches for accessing personal goods are rapidly disappearing. A change in economic means also changes how we transport goods and ourselves. Especially within urban settings.

Public transit has never been a sustaining investment. Most often it has torn large amounts of money from tax payers in our desire to improve mobility of people and goods. As it becomes more and more expensive to build and operate present mass transit lines, it is time for us to concede that older methods of getting people and things around no longer serve us well enough.

Independence is directly tied to a person being able to get from one place to another without relying on others or group-driven design. The automobile, which is a symbol of this individuality and independence, now needs integrative solutions tp improve its dream of personal mobility.

To attract significant ridership into mass-transit, there needs to be an individual€™ focus, not a collective (or mass) focus. This implies that buses and light rail no longer compete with society's changing needs for increased levels of personal mobility.

This means it is time our collective thinking and behavior to move out of the dark ages regarding transportation and into the future of independence more self-reliance. That future is now with PRT (Personal Rapid-Transit) technology leading the way to more efficient and cost effective solutions for moving both people and goods.

Join those of us who recognize PRT as a a way to meet today's needs for independent mobility. Help Twin Cities Minnesotans, who are deep supporters of disruptive innovation, to become exemplars of how point to point transportation can be dramatically improved in method and cost.
