SIKA, the Swedish transportation analysis institute, has published two new reports (summary in English) which show that PRT is a viable solution for part of the transportation problems in Stockholm and the surrounding area “mälardalen” which has a total population of 3 million.

The reports have given a certain echo in Swedish media:
