Innovative Transit blog was surprised by Ray Cox's claim about a Duluth Test Track.
This is surprising, because most PRT innovators know there were plans for a Duluth system -- which had support of the mayor, council and business community -- but plans never proceeded due to lack of funding.
So like me, he contacted Cox.
I misspoke. It was my understanding that work moved forward on this after I left the legislature, but it appears that is not the case.
Cox never returned my phone call, so it's good to get him on the record that he was in error on this.
The rest of the Innovative Transit (pro-PRT) blog entry was ranting about Ken Avidor. Ken's post was accurate. He had no obligation to contact Cox to verify what he said, since it was on tape. Cox said, what he said - and after I listened to the video, and read Avidor's post, I googled for information about the Duluth area PRT test track and could only find a Mark Olson press release promoting it.
