About

The PRT NewsCenter

We started following developments in the PRT industry c.1989, and in 2000 we started this website. Since then we've evolved from unabashed boosterism, into an organ for education and public awareness, and finally into what we are today -- your independent source for news, analysis and commentary on Pod Rapid Transit.

Our content is divided into 3 areas:

1) The NewsCenter, featuring Page One news aggregated from PRT-related stories in the world press. We provide our comments and analysis, with links to contextual material in our archives.
2) Occasional investigative and feature-length pieces, usually located at our blog This Week In Precipitation.
3) Topic pages, consisting mainly of explainers about PRT technology and how its various aspects bear on public policy, and pieces written to debunk claims of critics of PRT who it seems just can't be honest.

We hope you find our offerings informative and useful.
