VECTUS is a company fully committed to become, on a global basis, a leading supplier of fully automated, fully networked, intermediate public transit systems. The Vectus concept is based on driverless vehicles efficiently navigating a network on interconnecting track. Off-line stations, on-demand operation, point-to-point travel and 'taxi' style comfort and convenience are all features of the system. The use of smaller vehicles allows for less expensive infrastructure, which is also elevated to reduce ground take and obviate the need to relocate existing in-ground services.
Despite their relatively small scale, VECTUS vehicles offer high transport capacity because they can run with short headways, typically 3 seconds. System capacity can be optimised through the provision of different vehicle sizes ranging from six passenger (typical PRT style) to sixty passenger (GRT style), potentially all operating within the same network. In operation, VECTUS can typically halve the travel time for passengers, compared to bus and light rail services with similar line capacity, at a lower operating cost. www.vectusprt.com
