An innovative service on demand

 

The Pininfarina in London exhibition marks the world debut of the innovative system of urban public transport Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) developed in collaboration with Vectus, Korean company, leader in urban mobility solutions. Vectus concept is based on a system of small, light and driverless vehicles, efficiently navigating on a network of interconnecting tracks. It is an on-demand service: the passengers are carried from one point to another on demand, without intermittent stops, optimizing travel time

The search for simplicity and universality of the forms

 

The simple, clean design of the vehicles was intended by Pininfarina to insert the PRT harmoniously into the urban environment. The large windows, allowing passengers to enjoy the view, are integrated in a lightweight carbon fibre frame that can be customized with a choice of colors consistent with the urban style of the context in which the system will be inserted.

 

The search for simplicity and universality of the forms makes the project suitable to be introduced in urban areas very distant and different from each other. Pininfarina team worked also on the styling definition of stations and tracks.

A further step focused on sustainable mobility

 

"We are proud of the PRT project because it is a confirming  Pininfarina commitment in. The system designed in collaboration with Vectus will provide a low emission transport solution, efficient, comfortable and excellent from the point of view of integration into the environment. In fact the first application of our project will take place in the nature reserve of the Bay of Suncheon, South Korea in 2013."
