Another advanced transportation system

Wired featured another transportation system similar to SkyWeb Express and SkyTran (see previous post). It is called ULTra:

The ULTra web site says: "A personal automatic taxi providing on demand driverless travel - using its own guideway network. Effective, low cost and sustainable transport for cities, airports and special applications worldwide." It's max speed is 25 MPH, so SkyTran (at 100 MPH) seems more interesting in larger cities where it is 30 miles or more from one side to the other.
