Personal Rapid Transit (PRT) is a beautiful system where small vehicles drive on demand on a guideway system. It is much better than traditional transit.

Unfortunately it has never been fully implemented. Part of the reason is, that it is not a Dual Mode system. It cannot leave the guideway.

RUF can work as aPRT system where it is relevant (in dense parts of a town), but is also a Dual Mode system. In this respect it can be seen as a PRT+ system.

Since RUF also uses the maxi-ruf, it can be considered as a PRT++ system.
