Transport using electricity

With the high cost of petrol, many car manufacturers are looking at a new mode of transport using electric driven cars.

Some town planners are re-looking at using rail based systems for public transport, such as the MRT, LRT and trams.

There is a system called the PAT (personal automated transport). The vehicle carries 4 to 5 people and does not have a driver. It runs on rails and the route is controlled by a computer system. It operates like a taxi without a driver.

This type of system is being tested in some cities.
