"Self-Guided Vehicles systems are not cheap, but their fully-automated operation should bring their total cost of operation, including capital costs, within reach of more prosperous cities. They permit the operation of small-scale public transport service at comparatively low operating costs, principally because there is no driver to pay. Systems like these are comparatively quick to deploy and quite flexible, so that routes can be altered and extended without an enormous investment. Now that this technology has been developed and matured, there is no further reason to delay its implementation in urban areas.
