Personal Rapid Transit for Google?

Advanced Transit Systems is pitching the city of Mountain View on using the PRT system developed for Heathrow Airport to connect the downtown train station, NASA Ames and Shoreline businesses like Google.

"The Mountain View City Council's Transportation Subcommittee is set to discuss the idea on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Plaza Conference Room on the second floor of City Hall.

Advanced Transit Systems, or ATS, has outlined a possible route system that includes one route starting at the downtown transit station, heads down Stierlin Road and over the Shoreline Boulevard/Highway 101 overpass, and ends at the Googleplex's front door -- a 5-minute trip all told."
