The overall goal is to provide a system of transport for citizens and the business sector all over the country that is both economically effective and sustainable in the long term. The six sub-goals are: 1. an accessible transport system 2. a high standard of transport quality 3. safe traffic 4. a good environment 5. positive regional development 6. a transport system offering equal opportunities Banverket:  Banverket Rolling quarter statistics, million passengers per quarter Banverket:  Banverket Pressrelease feb 28 2006: (TO BE TRANSLATED) ”Den svenska Industrigruppen SkyCab och Banverket går samman med fordons-, IT-, stål- och byggindustrin ochutvecklar spårtaxi, PRT (Personal Rapid Transit).

Industrigruppen SkyCab samarbetar för utveckling av en ny svensk industrigren med storamöjligheter att skapa nya ”gröna jobb” och ökad export av svenskt teknikkunnande” ” Sverige arbetar sedan flera år med att bygga upp en inhemsk kompetens för utveckling av spårtaxi, PRT. Utöver Industrigruppen SkyCab, som samverkar med flera svenska högskolor och universitet, bl.a.

Since this is a new technology, a series of uncertainities arises regarding performance, cost and feasability. It is unreasonable for only one city to take the full risk of such a project. By joining forces from the leading cities and regions in Sweden and California we substantially increase the chance of success. IST has today gathered a group of municipalities, governement research institutions, universities, vendors, and NGOs that has commited to persue the possibility of Podcars as a sustainable transportation for the near future.   The purpose of the GTS Project is to initiate procurement processes for sustainable transportation based on Podcars. The GTS Project, an acronym for ”General Transportation System”, is a project initiated and driven by IST in Sweden in collaboration with UCI. The work of the project includes specifications, financing strategies, organisation & legislation, and other topics the GTS members find relevant for the project.   ___ commits to be present for the first International GTS meeting, scheduled to be held in fall 2007 in Sweden.  This commitment includes some of the following steps to be initiated in order to fullly be able to participate the meeting : Local analysis of Right of Way for Podcars, political mandate to fully participate, allocation of funds and resources needed to have reasonable technical background, proper review of local planning processes etc. IST can directly or by proxy assist in this work if needed.    Stockholm....
