Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is a system where small automated vehicles (typically 4 seats) run on a guideway on passenger demand, rather than to a timetable. The vehicles can travel from any station to any station without calling at intervening stops.


Note that since 2008 it was never used more than 3 times worldwide and recommended combination with railway=station is impossible.
