Meetings with Professor Jerry B. Schneider
Prof. Jerry B. Schneider worked together with his students to create the best possible RUF network covering Seattle.
Three groups competed and the best group created a network with 18 access points and 200 miles of guideway.
It can be created for in the order of magnitude of 1.4 billion dollars and it will offer a travel time reduction of 30%.
