Illustration of a PRT Network for the Central Area of Boston, Massachusetts

This Personal Capsule (PERC)  network was designed as part of a student project at MIT in 1968. It was included in the project report, entitled Project METRAN: An Evolutionary, Integrated Urban Transportation System. A brief description of the project is available on-line. PERC is highly similar to what is currently called Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) or Personal Automated Transit (PAT).
