South Korean Businessmen, Engineers Explore WVU's Transit System - Top Transit News | MassTransitMag.com: Better Transit Through Better Management

Following a ride on the PRT, the Koreans discussed some of the system's more technical aspects with PRT officials, said Bob Hendershot, assistant director of public safety and transportation at WVU.
"Right now they have a project funded by industry and the South Korean government to develop a PRT-like, automated technology to be used in various applications in South Korea," Hendershot said.
The transit system is a "sort of guiding light" for what the South Koreans want to do, Hendershot explained, because "it was extremely, extremely well-designed in the first place."

Hendershot said the PRT has been safe, efficient and more costeffective than most other transit systems for the past 30 years.
Transit developers want to know a system will stand the test of time before they spend millions of dollars, he said, so before they make that investment, they turn to proven technologies like the PRT.
The PRT's costs also have been held "relatively constant," Hendershot said, pointing out that it is not subject to fluctuations in gasoline prices because its cars are electric-motor driven."We are proof this kind of technology works in the long run," Hendershot said.
