The developer behind Raleigh's North Hills wants to install a transit system within the development that would shuttle people around in elevated, battery-powered vehicles.
Kane Realty announced Tuesday that it is partnering with ULTra PRT on a feasibility study to see if the company's transit system could be used in North Hills.
PRT, or Personal Rapid Transit, uses 4-person vehicles on elevated tracks to transport people short distances. Users would be able to take the cars, on demand, to the station of
their choice within North Hills.
The system would address an issue that North Hills is likely to face as it continues to expand: How to conveniently and efficiently get people across Six Forks Road and to areas east where Kane hopes to expand in the future.
