Austin PRT at 1st Street Pedestrian Bridge
Austin Citizens for PRT, Austin, Texas.
The Austin Citizens for Personal Rapid Transit (ACPRT) is a private group dedicated to promoting the use of Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) technology within the city of Austin, Texas.
POITRA was asked to prepare a series of visual simulations depicting PRT technology at various sites in Austin. Photo-simulation was the obvious medium for accurate and convincing presentations.
Modelers at POITRA Visual created a custom PRT vehicle for use in the simulations. The vehicle was based upon several theoretical designs for PRT type vehicles but includes special perameters as requested by the ACPRT. POITRA also modeled modular trackways and columns that could be easily sized for use in the many different situations called for in the simulations.
POITRA created a fictional PRT vehicle and applied an Austin paint scheme to the model.
POITRA often creates custom transit vehicles at no cost to the project.
