Is Mark Stenglein Still a PRTista?

Read Mark Stenglein's hilarious letter to a would-be PRT vendor. You can view the letter here.

"Intelligent Transportation and Taxi 2000, both Minnesota Companies, seem to be leading the world in automating transportation networks.Until I rode in the Taxi 2000 vehicle, I did not understand the power and simplicity of automating personal transit."

I think it's fair to say that the Taxi 2000 Corporation isn't leading the world in anything... the Taxi 2000 website hasn't posted any news since 2004.

That leaves Intelligent Transportation, the inventor of "J-Pods" as the only Minnesota company in the PRT business.

Here's a hilarious picture of the J-Pod. Reporters should ask Stenglein if he still thinks PRT is a great idea.
