Company Information

ULTra PRT (originally Advanced Transport Systems Ltd) began developing the system in 1995, in association with the University of Bristol. The ULTra system emerged from systematic engineering analysis as the optimum solution to urban transport problems. By 2001, the company had established a 1km test track in Cardiff, where it has conducted trial runs of several generations of PRT vehicles. In 2005, ULTra PRT was chosen to build a system at London's Heathrow Airport, which will open for service in summer 2011.
