Personal Rapid Transit systems

I kinda gave up ever seeing any PRTs(Personal Rapid Transit systems). I have followed SkyTran for years hoping that he might get a grant of some kind to put together a proof of concept rail, but nothing has ever happened. I think that there is a lot of local politics involved in public transit, and something as "new-fangled" as PRTs is never going to get its foot in the door. To those people holding the purse strings, it will always be too "futuristic," even into the next few centuries:-(
