A test of a new public transport system is being carried out in Cardiff Bay, U.K. See the BBC Article . Unlike conventional public transport, this consists of small cars that running on tracks can automatically take themselves to the correct destination. This allows there to be a mesh of tracks and stations thoughout a city, as opposed to traditional transport which tends to run along corridor routes to a city center. An paper is available. Future versions may have dual control to allow people to drive the cars from the nearest station off the track to their homes, so that it can altogether replace traditional cars.
