AUTOMATED GUIDEWAY TRANSIT SYSTEM (AGT)

Any guided transit mode, usually electric railway, with fully automated operation (i.e. no crew on the transit units). May be fixed schedule or in response to passenger activated call button. The term usually refers, however, only to guided modes with small and medium-sized vehicles that operated on guideways with exclusive right-of-way. The term includes the personal rapid transit concept and group rapid transit or people mover systems. (TRB)
