Preview Heathrow's new surface transit technology

These are some of the videos from the "PRT@LHR" (Personal Rapid Transit at London Heathrow) conference, which was held April 21-23. The Heathrow "Urban Light Transport" (ULTra) system is the first in the new-generation of automated transit technologies; it is similar to the transit system planned for Masdar City in Abu Dhabi.

The airport plans to expand ULTra to provide point-to-point, electric transit between all the terminals as well as adjoining hotels. (All the videos are here. Note some of the videos below are being re-edited.)
