Masdar City in Abu Dhabi is being built to be totally fossil fuel free, with no conventional vehicles allowed. In place of them will be the Personal Rapid Transit system. Using “podcars,” little electric cabs that have a maximum speed of 25 mph, individuals will be able to travel to 85 stations throughout the city, with 130,000 trips offered a day. (And the doors open Star Trek style ;>)) For the transport of larger items, the Freight Rapid Transit will carry a two pallet load on vehicles underground (well, under the raised pedestrian level anyway…) which will also be powered by renewable energy.
