Coaster Automated Transport System
Something I read about in the State Library of Victoria was the Coaster, a European project for an automated transportation passenger system. Each Coaster vehicle carries 6 to 10 people and runs on a track similar to a roller coaster. The vehicles are battery powered, with recharging at the stations. The Coaster does not run to a timetable, but instead vehicles are computer scheduled at customer request. This is similar to the Australian Bishop Austrans system, but is in actual use. So I did a web page about it.
