The management of a Santa Cruz PRT
system will need to be performed in very close cooperation
with the Santa Cruz Metropolitan Transit District (SCMTD).
In order for the PRT system to meet
its ridership goals, intersecting east-west Transit
District routes must be on frequent headways and have
stops in close proximity to the PRT stations. This is
a critical component in the plan to remove significant
numbers of single occupant automobiles from Santa Cruz
As a result of these critical needs,
it may be most desirable to have SCMTD operate the PRT
system or, work very closely in concert with what ever other agency DOES operate the PRT system.
