Mayoral Candidate Piotr Anweiler thinks that Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is a better way to solve Ottawa's traffic problem than Light Rail.
Anweiler has a blog devoted to the subject. From a recent entry:
"...the modest, pollution and accident free, most efficient way of public transportation, that I would like to build next year in the downtown of our city. Because PRT technology is still new, I am suggesting to build a pilot project as a tourist attraction for Ottawa visitors and eventually later expand it... It will be the first such solution in the World and will attract a lot of attention. It will be a city investment that will be returned to the city coffers in a maximum of 2 years, and for the future years it will create profit that the city can use for other necessities."
